This has absolutely nothing to do with WVU, but it is too funny not to link. I saw this first on AOL, but when I went to see the actual article and comments I damn near fell out of my chair. It appears. Furman Bisher doesn't like the Japs (as I'm sure he'd call them). On opening day in Japan:
Eight springs ago the Mets and Cubs opened the season, not in Cincinnati. Guess where? Tokyo. That Tokyo, the guys who gave us Pearl Harbor. Some people don’t like you to bring that up, trade with Japan is so hot. But I’ve got a long memory. I saw what a few bombs can do to our property.But that isn't even the best part. If you get a chance read through some of the comments. Of course there are those that point out that Bisher may in fact need to retire or move on.

You know it’s time to hang ‘em up when your articles read like very well done satire.
By beedlebaumBut the best are the guys that defend the comments and talk about the "nuclear" bombs dropped by the U.S.

It’s amazing that, while there are real complaints about having an opening day in Japan, you come up with this half-baked garbage.
Ignoring that the Japanese know (probably much better than you) what a few bombs can do, and have managed to invite the national pasttime of the country that dropped those bombs into their country and have celebrated that pasttime is borderline is about as stupid as it gets. Maybe you should really considering retiring. Seriously, even Andy Rooney laughs at your column.

It was the nuclear bombs or American lives lost invading, that was the issue and it was reolved correctly. Regarless of the liberal wimpering, Nagasaki came days later, they had their chance. And Marc, Blacks do hold slavery against whites whose families were in Europe at the time. Just see Bigot Wright’s comments.

Mr. Bisher, I applaud you for your xenophobia, your mindless conservatism, and most of all your disguised racism. If only we could get rid of all of the greasebacks in this game. I’m fine with the darkies and all, but I do believe them latinos are ruining tradition.
