One Joker Short

Of a deck of race cards. The SJ Mercury News has a charming story on the continuing saga of Riordan's interpretation of the name 'Isis'. The headline: "Call for Riordan resignation rescinded: Assemblyman piles gaffe on top of gaffe."

Seems Merv Dymally (D-Los Angeles, and on his 2d round of legislative service) was about to hold a press conference condemning Riordan's statemetns and questioning whether he'd have said the same thing to a white child.

The problem -

Isis IS a white child.

Whoopsie.
