'WE KNOW WHERE YOU'RE REALLY COMING FROM'

Dear Source,
While I am no admirer of Ron Dellums, I consider Joseph Ballmer's portayal of him insulting and disrespective of him as a U.S. congressman. Further, calling President Jean-Bertrand Aristide corrupt and oppressive (without evidence) while ignoring Papa Doc, Baby Doc and the military juntas is ridiculous.
I guess if Ballmer gets his way, the next lecturer in the Alfred O. Heath Distinguished Speakers Forum will be David Dukes or someone of his ilk. Let's not hide behind Thomas and Williams; we know where you're really coming from.
