Stefan Sharkansky’s excellent Shark Blog has named Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs its Blog of the Day.
Shark says of LGF: “LGF is an indispensible resource for all things related to the intertwined evils of militant Islamism, Arab fascism, anti-Semitism, and their apologists in the western world. You will find far more timely news and honest information about the dangers emanating from the Middle East over at LGF than you will in the mainstream American media. And not only does Charles defend America and Israel with passion and good sense but he also has a wonderful sense of humor. (See for example, the ongoing series of ‘What’s on Arafat’s Desk?’.)”

Shark himself deserves recognition today. From him we learn the following: “In 1998, the voters of Washington State passed ballot measure I-200, which stated: ‘The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting…’[this explicitly applies to school districts within the state].
“I-200 passed with 58% of the vote. On Thursday, the Washington State Supreme Court ruled 8-1 that the Seattle School District may use race as a factor in assigning students to public schools. The majority opinion is a marvel of sophistry and word play that flagrantly mocks the clear intent of I-200, that the state shall not ‘discriminate against’ anybody on the basis of race, ethnicity, etc.
“‘The meaning of ‘discriminate against’ is less clear.’ I guess that depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is. But I think that the parents of any child who doesn’t get into her first-choice school because she is the wrong color will understand exactly what ‘discriminate against’ means, as did the 1.1 million people who voted for I-200.”
