Life is stranger than fiction department:

On October 11, 1996 then-retired General (later Secretary of State under Bush III) Colin Powell ended up apologizing for a racist remark made at a speech given at the Business Leadership Summit in Stockton, California; The subject was "Affirmative Action and the Global Economy".

"If you give 1.3 billion Chinamen access to home shopping on television, (communism) is over, because there is no way communism can compete with a salad shooter for $9.95."

Recently released tapes reveal new levels of bigotry - against Jews, blacks, Mexicans and gays, for example - including a special slam at everyone's favorite city. In a recent Chicago Tribune column, James Warren quoted a 1971 presidential conversation with John Ehrlichman, in which both were lamenting the rise of liberalism.

"San Francisco has just gone clear over," says Ehrlichman. "But it's not just the ratty part of town," says the leader of the free world. "The upper class in San Francisco is that way, The Bohemian Grove, which I attend from time to time. It is the most faggy god-damned thing you could ever imagine, with that San Francisco crowd. I can't shake hands with anybody from San Francisco."
