Hey, that is about right. The way minority men are more into sex than other men and more likely to act out sexually, maybe giving them a sex line will distract them into not suing.

Okay, wrong type of race. So the hotline was for noise-related complaints for a marathon. I could see how this would play out:

"You got to do something about these ****ing runners."

"Sure, here's the ****ing number to complain about it."

[Dials number]

"I'd like to complain about the ****ing race"

"I don't know anything about that, but how about you and I do some ****ing of our own!"

The bit not mentioned was the costs incurred in phoning the sex line. A very thorough way of deterring complaints though.

Sounds like a good way for Washington D.C. to raise some money. 5$ a min. for a complaint line.

By the time some people shut up the natl. debt would be paid off. Rick
