->[Shallan] turned back to Pattern, who had shifted into his hovering form. He looked something like the pattern of splintered light thrown on the wall by a crystal chandelier--except he was made of something black instead of light, and he was three-dimensional. So... Maybe not much like that at all.

->Was it true? Had Lex traded in the red, white, and blue for [=DiBiase=]’s green? No, said Luger. Tatanka insisted Luger was lying, while Lex embarked on a lousy PR campaign...\\\
The purpose of this dud of an angle? Vince had to ham-fistedly prove a point about [[RealLifeWritesThePlot his steroid trial that summer.]] See, just because someone was accused of wrongdoing didn’t mean he wasn’t '''totally 100% innocent'''. If Wrestling/LexLuger could be framed, so could Wrestling/VinceMcMahon! And I guess that meant [[DrFeelgood Dr. Zahorian]] was like Wrestling/TedDiBiase? And that it was the federal prosecutor who was actually distributing the steroids, not Vince? Okay, I guess the parallels ended there. In other words, this angle was the second-most insulting analogy for the [=McMahon=] steroid trial in history. But you’ve got to admire [=McMahon’s=] chutzpah for using Lex Luger [[CanonSue as a symbol of his innocence]] on steroid charges.

What sort of brain-damage does it take to argue this with a straight face? Do they really, really, think someone will say "My god, a lunch counter is JUST LIKE a romantic interest. There's no way to someone could tell them apart. If a business doesn't want to serve any blacks, that's just like not having sex with someone". But apparently, this is all part of the "[[{{Newspeak}} right of association]]" in Libertarianism.

Added DiffLines:

->'What is it about the "lunch counter" that is different from a date? ... is it violence to be overtly racist in selecting a romantic interest? If so, how should we prevent it? If not, why not. Is it because the relationship is not primarily economical, in the narrow sense?'\\\
