Natasha Charles is My Hero

Outside of Madison Square Garden in New York, hundreds of angry Knicks fans are protesting against Knicks' coach Isaiah Thomas, signing petitions to get him fired. The New York Times has the whole article, if you care. Regardless, this was by far my favorite couple of paragraphs I've read in an article in a while:

Some people walking by stopped for a few moments to listen out of curiosity but not everyone was supportive. Natasha Charles, who said she was headed to work at New York Lawyers for Public Interest, stopped to debate a few demonstrators.

"Seriously, of all the things you could protest, I can’t believe this,” she said. ”Compared to the jerk we have in the White House, this is minutia. George Bush is the one we should be protesting. This is ridiculous. This is embarrassing.”

In other news, upset about affirmative action, Republicans have begun protesting chocolate milk.
