Okay, let's have the usual onslaught of posts about how all those "other people" from over the hill come here to commit crimes. With that dreaded "stack and pack" and Agenda 21 we'll have nogoodniks like these guys all over Danville in no time.

Hey - and guess what? The race of the perps wasn't mentioned, was it? We all know what that means, as we've been advised repeatedly by posts from locals right here on the Danville Express - it's obvious that the bad guys are minorities, and their races are being concealed due to "reverse racism" and "liberal PC" - right?

C'mon, guys: where's the outrage? These guys stole a lot of money, and victimized people who were losing their homes. Why aren't the sanctimonious Danville "we are superior" crowd up in arms?

... As through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men
Some will rob you with a six-gun
And some with a fountain pen

And as through your life you travel
Yes, as through your life you roam
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home

You know, Karen, when most folks reach a certain age or stage of development -- say, their mid-teens -- they find their own accomplishments are a better source of personal pride than when their ancestors arrived here, from where, or whether they traveled by first class ticket.

Then again, maybe you DON'T know.

Karen, the surname "Silva" is Portuguese. Portugal is in Europe. (I know, I know, this stuff is hard. But take your time, look it up, sound out the big words.) I know lots of Silvas. None of them are "minorities", no matter how you spell it.

Ignorance and racism, ignorance and racism - "...go together like a horse and carriage..."
