Topic: "Jim Crow" (5)
"Watch Michael Crow eat Crow because of Jim Crow. How's that for succinct and to the point?", Frodo asked Samwise.
"I couldn't have done better myself, Mr. Frodo," responded Samwise.
The President of Arizona State University, Dr. Michael Crow, is a judgment-challenged nincompoop. He has the apparent intelligence quotient of a bullfrog, and has done damage to both the reputation of a major academic institution and concomitantly given credence to the continuing existence of racism as a behavioral factor in American social policy. The burlesque performed by an academic administration in order to justify the lunatic ravings of those who would deny awarding an honorary degree to the President of the United States whom they invited to their own Commencement exercises absolutely defies logic. There is no need for Frodo to further explain the circumstances.
Frodo asks only if Michael Crow is able to see Russia from his verandah?
Would someone please tell him that he can pick up his certificate from CBS for his winning entry in David Letterman's "Stupid Pet Tricks"?
