    Now Dale Hansen Has To Pretend To Be a Dumb Old White Guy

    Here's an after-thought on the galactic response to WFAA sportscaster Dale Hansen's anti-homophobia commentary last week about football player Michael Sam. It puts him in a weird position, old-white-guy-wise. My own comments on it at the time were typical -- making a big deal out the fact that Han ... More >>
