White Man March Founder Kyle Hunt Resigns From White Man Marching

White Man Marchers take to the suburbs.
All good things must come to an end, as well as some less good, more obnoxious things. That is, anyway, the lesson we take from this news: Kyle Hunt, founder of the White Man March, has resigned. He posted a farewell letter on White Man March.com on April 18; the site now redirects to something called the White Genocide Project, which, like the White Man March, is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. These folks are very direct.

As you may recall, the White Man March was planned for a bunch of cities worldwide on Saturday, March 15. We broke the news in the non-racist press of the march's existence. The story quickly went viral, which led to exactly one good thing: the Internet gave us the unending gift that is #WhiteManMarchProtestSigns.

Two Middle-Aged White Guys Wearing Suits Hail Same NYC Taxi. Slap-Fight Ensues *VIDEO*

Throw a punch, sissies!


When two middle-age white guys wearing business suits get into a fight, there are no winners -- there's just disheveled thinning hair, bruised egos, and damaged street cred. 

That said, the street cred of middle-age white guys wearing business suits is at an all-time low this morning thanks to two middle-age white guys who got into a fight over a cab last week. Video of the scuffle was then posted on YouTube.

No punches were thrown -- just a few slaps and a brief headlock -- and nobody was injured, which is everything you'd expect from a fight between two middle-age white guys wearing business suits.

We don't encourage anyone to get into a fight, but if you're gonna do it, try to not look like a couple of prepubescent girls -- the street cred of others depends on it.

See the video of these two sissies slapping away at each other after the jump.

Rush Limbaugh: Saved by Sandra Fluke?

When Rush Limbaugh called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" on his radio show Feb. 29, it sure seemed like the end of an era might be upon us.

Public outcry prompted sponsors to pull support from the show, leaving many to wonder whether the conservative stalwart would have much longer to lash out against liberals and ladies.

To be fair, Rush did damage control issue an apology, but many saw the mea culpa as meaningless -- worthy of all-out mocking.

But as bad as Rush's gaffe might be -- and to be clear, it is bad -- you have to wonder: could this bolster Limbaugh's languishing career?

Our copy of the Puppy Diaries.
Jill Abramson, executive editor of the New York Times, is a huge dog lover. How huge? She blogged about her adorable golden retriever puppy Scout on nytimes.com and she's coming out with a book this month, The Puppy Diaries: Raising a Dog Named Scout, also known as Jill Abramson's God Damn Puppy Book. It's the best vanity project of 2011(it was even printed by Times Books!) and we've gotten our hands on an advance copy. John Koblin made some observations last week, but we'll go ahead and publish a paragraph or two ourselves. A caveat: this is an advance reader's copy; the final version may be different.

Sometimes it's fun to go to the UrbanBaby "Talk" boards and see how the other half lives. The problems of the UrbanBaby moms are so, so different from our problems that it's actually really interesting! We just found this gem from last week (FYI, DH means "darling husband" in UrbanBaby-ese):

Columbia Drug Ring Kids Want to Protect Their Futures

In December, five Columbia students were arrested in a major drug sting, and yesterday, their lawyers turned down a no-jail plea deal. Four of the five were offered the bargain, which would have allowed them to serve zero jail time as long as they pleaded guilty to a felony. The students' lawyers refused to accept the offer insisting that a felony would prevent the boys from ever becoming doctors or lawyers. The fifth defendant, Harrison David, was offered a year in prison because he sold cocaine to an undercover cop while his friends were only peddling club drugs and pot. David's lawyer insists that his client only started selling cocaine when he was pressured by the undercover officer, and he hopes to have David's sentence reduced to the same punishment as his friends.
