    What had me laughing was the idea of the board of inquiry taking ONE full day to sit and watch the Lone Ranger to see if the term was used in a derogetory manner! One full day!

    Do they do this in order to entertain us? Because I am highly amused. This has got to be one of the funniest articles I have seen in a long time.

    :laugh:

    "The board of inquiry spent one day looking at old Lone Ranger shows, eventually concluding that the term was never used in a derogatory way and that Tonto and the Lone Ranger treated each other with respect."

    I could have told them this without them watching the show. I think they just wanted a break from the hectic lifestyle of judging people to watch old Lone Ranger shows. It was more to do with good memories than actual judgement.
