The Red Man In The Land of Opportunity

February 25, 2016
   I read recently that some California Universities are considering a ban on the use of the term "land of opportunity," alleging it's racist, and that any professor who uses the term will be written up.

   Went home for lunch today and started noodling some red wash around on water color paper. Just having fun. As I pushed the paint around to see where it would go, a face started to evolve and as it became clearer, and redder, I just couldn't resist. In the spirit of Bruce Springsteen ("They said sit down and I stood up") and of just flat-out asinine ridiculousness—and on the off chance of being written up—I decided to name today's Whip Out in honor of all those goonballs in the first paragraph.

Daily Whip Out: "The Red Man In The Land of Opportunity"
