Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.
1. We’re only getting half the story. Who knows what really happened.
2. The local TV report — and the mytwocensus post headline — share an unseemly fascination with the “cross-dressing” part of the enumerator’s life. I must have missed the criminalization of being a cross-dresser. I expect shit like that from bush league local TV in Texas, not from an Ivy League guy in San Francisco. Next week: “Black census employee leers at white woman in Alabama,” or “Jew census employee gets loud-mouthed with citizen in Oregon.”
3. The local TV reporter said the woman is terminally ill but never elaborated. Frankly, she looks like a “disabled” woman whose “disability” is “allergy to work.” Call me an asshole. (Actually, she looks like she has COPD.)
4. Andrea Nguyen of KIAH-TV in Houston is not unattractive.
Wow! She does seem pretty shook up and battered after this encounter! Notice how difficult it was for her to beat her bruised arm on the door…..she could barely get through the recreation of this scary and troubling encounter. Fortunately, she was able to calm herself enough to place the phone call to the media for her 5 minutes of fame….
