Soul Train

In honor of Don Cornelius, people are planning a double soul train in Times Square at 4pm today (Saturday, 2/4). Details at Facebook. Similar festivities went down in Chicago where Don Cornelius was from.

Sounds fun. Being in Times Square with a bunch of white douche nozzles who have never seen an episode of Soul Train or even knew what it was until the dude blew his brains out and who are only there because they know other like-minded, simple-minded white folks will be there because they feel totally dead inside if they aren't acting like a bunch of sheep in public.

Just had a brilliant idea. Going to advertise the "largest flash mob in NYC" and have it on a ship at the piers. Then sail that thing right out to middle of the sea.
