Tuesday, July 8th, the Dallas County Commissioners court was holding a special hearing regarding reported problems with the central collections office that handles paperwork and traffic fine payments for the Justice of the Peace courts in Dallas County.
County Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield noted that the office is losing paperwork, and metaphorically called the office a “black hole”.
County Commissioner John Wiley Price then interrupted Commissioner Mayfield with a yelped, “Excuse me!” before asserting that the office had become a “white hole”.
Wait. It gets better.
Justice of the Peace Precinct One, Place One The Honourable Thomas Jones — no webpage available — then demanded an apology from Mr. Mayfield for the use of a “racially-insensitive analogy”.
When my legions of flying monkeys complete my Quest For World Domination, one of my first acts is going to be to ensure that this kind of stupidity hurts — one way or another.
Tip of the Stetson to Gentle Reader Merlin, who was kind enough to forward me a link to this asininity.
