Chocolate City profiteering

Read this before you buy one of those Ray Nagin Willy Wonka Chocolate City T-Shirts. Hurricane Katrina victims deserve better. New Orleans deserves better. Those who seek financial rewards by disseminating language and imagery which promotes social division are passing a heavy debt onto society. Become a part of the solution, not part of the problem.

It's a Google bomb -- do a search for "Willy Wonka Chocolate City T-Shirts" and you'll end up here -- my way of throwing a wrench in the works.

Well, it was working for a while. It seems that the search engines have ways of foiling the Google bombs.

I know a lot of people looking for chocolate city t-shirts found their way here and stayed for long enough to read something, so maybe I persuaded some people to think differently about the issue, and to care about New Orleans.

OK, my typepad is choking so no googlebomb.

Here's what I think: the photoshopped image obviously came from a copyrighted image of Nagin, and a copyrighted image from the Willy Wonka movie.

Sue the bastards, and the money goes to rebuild NOLA.
