I can go home now

After learning something new that didn't have to do with Brian's mom.

Apparently Tony Parker -point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, French citizen and the man who cheated on Eva Longoria- apologized for making what's considered an Anti-Semitic gesture in France. A photo from three years ago surfaced. Parker, as have others, claimed he didn't know it was anti-Semitic gesture.

It's called the quenelle. News to me.

That's the last time I take Francois Mitterand fishing.

    I need to know these things in case I'm ever offended and don't know it.

    Ridiculous.
  • Parker (and apparently French teammate Boris Diaw) may not have known this (I'll give them the benefit of the doubt) but there's got to be something wrong with Parker to even have his picture taken with somebody like Dieudonne. This guy seems like a bad guy - Holocaust denier, 9/11 denier, once said about a Jewish political opponent that it was too bad that gas chambers no longer existed.

    Er, OK Steven, perhaps you are the real Salty Dancing One after all.

    p.s. Before she retired my wife sold Abilify, a potent anti-psychotic. I used to tell people that after I stole her samples I only heard happy voices. I think some folks here might like to give it a try.

    The idea of SDD posting Kanaloa-length stream-of-consciousness ramblings is truly alarming.

    OTOH, I thought Rodney was fun to have around and wish he would return.
