  1. 1) I’m disappointed that you say racism isn’t defeated now that Obama’s won the Presidency. That’s why I voted for him. Does that at least earn me a bye on the whole racism thing? I’m kind of tired of it, is all. And racist jokes–like jokes based on religion and sexism–are funny, whereas those based on nationality have lost a lot of punch over the years.
    2) As for Starship Troopers… “When the Veterans took over…” Doesn’t seem too likely with our lot.
