another (prospectively) racial incident; a much happier ending

Hey, this is a lot better than the Gates/Obama story:

A nice vignette from the C-J a happy ending for the awkward dismissal of a group of inner-city kids from a pool in Pennsylvania a few weeks back...

Explaining the expulsion, the president of the swim club said, “There was concern that a lot of kids would change the complexion … and the atmosphere of the club.” The man later apologized for the incident, and what he called his poor choice of words.

Boy, it'd be nice if Obama moved from regret for a poor choice of words to an apology!

The kids caught in this unfortunate event have happier things to look forward to. They're going to Disney World. Entertainment magnate Tyler Perry, star of all the Madea movies, is sending the 65 kids who got kicked out the pool to the Florida theme park from Aug. 1-3. He's paying for everything...
