Quote of the Day

From a New York Press item on those two idiots in Queens who beat up a goth kid who claimed to be a practicing satanist:

The local tabs... couldn't resist running with headlines like "Qns. Satanist Catches Hell" (Daily News) and "Devil of a Beating for Queens Satanist" (The Post). Reading those, we had to wonder—if the victim in this case had been Muslim, Catholic or gay, would they have used headlines like "Allah Be Pummeled," "Priest Gets Holy Crap Beaten Out of Him," or "Gay Man's Wrist Not so Limp in Cast"? We doubt it (except maybe for that first one).

dude ... "gay man's wrist not so limp in cast" would be a great onion headline.
