The Onion or TIME?

Oh. You can’t make ledes like this up. Can you? From what-could’ve-been-The-Onion:

In nature, most seals are black, with relatively few white ones. The Navy’s SEALs have exactly the opposite problem – they’re overwhelmingly white, with hardly any blacks. So they’re trying to do something about it.

Dear God. Let’s screw up yet one more thing and enforce affirmative action quotas within a specific volunteer branch of an all-volunteer force. So now the Navy will spend more money we don’t have hiring a contractor to appeal to specific minority groups nationwide in an effort to bolster the number of minority SEALs.

I’m near speechless. Read the rest.

  1. Oh for pete’s sake. Do they think it’s racism or what? And what a way to phraqse it, contrasting it against real seals. The media will never amaze me.

    By the way, on a different subject, if you want to read a funny blog on my two year old son, check it out:

    • Manny, I wondered where you were this morning! Thanks for commenting. I can’t believe your son is already 2!

    • Manny, I tried to leave a comment there but couldn’t–it wouldn’t submit. So here it is:

      Too fun! Manny, record as much as you can. We have a video of our nearly 4 year-old at about 14 months that I could play all day just to hear her say “socks.” Actually, there are quite a few of those. And cherish the mispronunciations: there are few things finer to my ear than to hear the way my daughter says “porcupine.” I will miss it when she outgrows it.
