    platitudes do have their place in this anti-intellectual society. Sayings like "drill, baby, drill" and "death squads coming for grandma" have staying power simply because they are short. Needless to say, the veracity of the slogan doesn't matter as long as the catchiness of the phrase gets it picked up by enough people to become a meme.

    What a sad, sorry commentary on our society...

    "Separate but equal" isn't. Anyone kept involuntarily separate can't possibly be considered "equal."
