Learning that your first name appears in the Top 20 Whitest Names not once, but five times...

Are you Itchy Richie?

Love watching the "news" in New York.  Channel 5 aired a town hall meeting earlier this week of Upper West Side mothers near tears and screaming at their local government, because their children are suffering from mosquito bites from insects NOT carrying West Nile Virus.  According to UNICEF, one child dies every 30 seconds from malaria.  According to an unscientific report entirely composed by my guesstimates, about 0% of those cases occur in pretentious Manhattanites.  It's not easy being white.
