WTH? moments

"... A St. Louis scientist who was among a select group picked by the Obama administration to pursue a solution to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been removed from the group because of writings on his website, the U.S. Energy Department confirmed Wednesday..." Apparently because of homophobic writings. Well and good, but from there to: "... "It's disappointing at a time like this that when all Americans need to come together and focus on relief efforts and recovery efforts in the Gulf, someone divisive was placed in a position of power" (per an "advocate"). WTH?

Professor dumped from oil spill team over writing

And, according to another "advocate", since hate crimes legislation does not include extra penalties covering assaults on the homeless, "... You can still hate the homeless in this country. They are the one last group that you can publicly hate..." WTH? Oh, and since the culprits in this case happened to be from a military base, he wants service members to take sensitivity training!

Group wants homeless protected under hate crime laws
