Margaret Grey came on praising a New York City elementary school teacher who admitted in a September 7th blog that she had worked as a prostitute. It takes a certain kind of tough woman to do that in the name of supporting herself so she can be a teacher some day. Not a bad role model for other young women, said Margaret. When Phil asked her how she’d feel about a life like that for any daughter of hers Margaret told him “Well of course that wouldn’t be for my daughter. I can’t have that given the time I spend exposed in the media. But for other women’s daughters I think it’s a great opportunity.
The next hour it was Professor Emory Clayton who told Phil it’s racist for a white man to hang a black effigy from his tree on halloween but it’s not for a black man to hang a white one. The reason? All ghouls and goblins are white. “Dracula was a white man,” says Professor Clayton.
