On Bets

We've all heard by now of the thankfully quickly defunct program whereby one could bet on various terrorist/etc. acts.

I see it as wrong not because it gives off the wrong impression to the outside world, or because it's intolerant of other countries, or because the wrong people could win it -- no, as a true southern woman, I see it as wrong because it's tacky. The greatest sin of all: tackiness.

(The concept of tackiness, my sorority-girl kid sister tells me, is well explained by Maryln Schwartz.)
