"There's no reason why a society consisting of rational beings capable of empathizing with each other, complete and having no natural reason to compete, should have a government, laws or leaders." - Valerie Solanas, SCUM

I just read SCUM Manifesto for the first time, and have to say Solanas is quite brilliant. She's sublimely talented at the difficult art of irony, and sometimes she's also really funny,

In other news, BBC presenter Jeremy Clarkson has apologized for recently calling Prime Minister Gordon Brown a "one-eyed Scottish idiot." Disability groups were rightly upset about the comment, and there has been much media coverage of complaints from those with disabilties. And now that being Scottish is officially considered a Disability, maybe I can get compensation! But seriously, I find it fascinating that no one mentioned the racial slur of an Enlgish commentator callilng someone a "Scottish idiot." The one-eyed part was crap too, but am I the only one who noticed that "Scottish idiot" sounded like a term that came out of Clarkson's mouth pretty often? And why did all the papers leave out the word "Scottish" when quoting him?
