Brett Ridgeman: Politics like always.

Lt. Calvert: Like cell phones, and just as annoying, politics are everywhere. Being branded a racist in today's public forum is like being accused of being a communist in the 50s, whether it’s a possibly racist remark made in a private phone call or the indelicate treatment of a minority who sells drugs to children. The entertainment industry, formerly known as the news, needs villains.

Anthony Lurasetti: There's certainly nothing hypocritical about the media handling every perceived intolerance with complete and utter intolerance.
