Tim, I'm concerned by the lack of fat, atheist, handicapped, black lesbian racecar drivers at the Indy 500. When do you expect one to hit the pavement, freeing us all at last from the rampant, neverending politically correct tinge to everything in America? I have a dream, I have a dream......

Yes, Vinny, it's a big deal to have 4 women in the Indy 500 for the first time. You are either too young or to ignorant or too much of a male to remember the days when girls were told that they could only be secretaries, teachers, nurses, or mothers. I received an F on a career day paper (and it wasn't that long ago) because I wrote that I wanted to be an astronaut, lawyer or race car driver. My ever-so-enlightened female teacher said those were not acceptable choices for girls. I will be at the race on Sunday. Look for me. I'll be the one with the giant sign that says RUN, GIRLS, RUN! It isn't about being politically correct...it's about opportunity.
