A Giant Sucking Sound

Funny how some morons seem to never fade away:

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."

Well, somebody in that conversation was some kind of hole.

I remember John Wiley Price from my days in Dallas back in the 80's; he along with fellow morons Diane Ragsdale and Al Lipscombe were the Big D equivalents of Al Sharpton - black "leaders" [sic] who saw racism at every turn and who fought it with the sort of rapier intellect Price exhibits above. I had no idea he was still blathering on. Austin certainly has its share of morons in public office, but I think it still tends to be better on the whole than the disasters that have rolled through Dallas City Hall over the years.

This of course is another fine example of words meaning whatever you want, as in niggardly and alien
