High Court Sides with Klan in Adopted Highway Program

High Court Sides with Klan in Adopted Highway Program:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court let stand on Monday a ruling that the Ku Klux Klan white supremacist group can take part in Missouri's "Adopt-A-Highway" program in which volunteers pick up trash along the road and the state puts up a sign thanking the group.

To which moi says, let them. I rather like the idea of Klansmen bending over to pick up trash. What a pity those long white bed-sheets linen robes will hide their firm, round and athletic buttocks. Still, if done at night, they do present a very identifiable target presence, non? It also occurs to moi that they are not lynching our siblings of color if they are collecting le gar-bahge.

I have to wonder, though--do you think that particular stretch of highway is going to get most of the trash thrown out car windows?

Play nice, children. Used prophylactics go in the trash, not on the roadways.
