The great thing about this clip, which starts at the two-minute mark, is how Olbermann thwarts Dungy’s attempt to claim the high ground without resorting to calling him a bigot or criticizing him for having a unpopular opinion. After establishing Dungy’s history of homophobia, Olbermann makes it obvious that this isn’t about distractions at all: he points out Dungy’s hypocrisy by digging up an earlier quote in which Dungy said Sam “will be welcome in the league,” and notes how Dungy served as the mentor for Michael Vick, who some might have considered something of a distraction. The killing blow comes when Olbermann notes just how Dungy’s passive “distraction” excuse was once used, in identical form, to keep black men out of football. And then: “Tony Dungy just admitted that Tony Dungy wouldn’t be a skilled enough coach to deal with the distraction of doing the right thing.”
SLC Punk! (1998)
This movie meant a lot to me at one point in my life. For some reason this, HACKERS, and maybe CLERKS were the Trifecta.
What the hell was wrong with me? I should have been watching more kung-fu and Godzilla movies.
CBLDF’s brand-new publication Working With Libraries! provides comics creators with a valuable insider’s perspective on the library world and the systems librarians have to navigate to bring comics to their patrons. The handbook details the basics of public, school, and academic libraries, explains the collection development process, and offers suggestions for ways creators can collaborate with libraries in developing events and programs.
The handbook is available now as a free download at cbldf.org. Printed copies will be available from CBLDF at booth #1920 during this week’s Comic-Con International convention in San Diego.
