Insult a homosexual........

.......go to "re-education camp". Last year, during a heated argument on the set of "Grey's Anatomy", Isaiah Washington, was so foolish to use a pejorative term for a homosexual in regards to fellow cast member, T.R. Knight. Unfortunately, since we live in a society where certain members are afforded special victim status (which means you cannot even think of criticising them), he got taken to the proverbial "woodshed" and that....

"he had begun counseling "as a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again."

"I appreciate the fact that I have been given this opportunity and I remain committed to transforming my negative actions into positive results, personally and professionally,"

I guess the producers told him that he had better learn to do the "mea culpa" dance if he wanted to continue to cash that fat paycheck. (Ed note: The Great El-ahrairah does not watch "Grey's Anatomy", so he doesn't know what the show is about other than a medical drama with young doctors saving the world, one patient at a time. Been there, watched that, got the t-shirt.)

The Cap'n and I joke about being carted off to "re-education camp" by the liberals for some of our views, but like they say, the truth is stranger than fiction. I'm surprised that Mr. Washington didn't try to turn the tables and accuse Mr. T.R. Knight (and others of the mostly white cast) of using the "N" word. That would have really been entertaining to see which aggrieved minority trumps the other. I wonder if "Big Al" Sharpton would have intervened?
