From the ACLU:

JANUARY 11, 2008, is the six-year anniversary of the first arrival of prisoners at Guantánamo Bay.

On January 11, we are calling on everyone opposed to torture and indefinite detention to WEAR ORANGE to symbolize their sadness and disgust with the national shame that is Guantánamo Bay.

This is going to not make

This is going to not make sense in Knoxville or at any hub airport in the US that has a flight going to Knoxville.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It's not like it's a big stretch to wear Orange in East TN. But at least everybody's got something to wear.

True. I never need to know

True. I never need to know the gate number when I am flying to Knoxville, just the terminal at EWR. I simply look for the mass of Big Orange gear. I wonder if it is the same for other Jockocracy schools like Ohio State or Michigan? I am going to check out those gates next time I fly domestic.

Chad, can you loan me something orange?

Why rent when you can buy? I'm sure there's a Wal-Mart near you, complete with officially licensed (and cheap) merchandise. Should you desire something a bit more 'upscale', a trip to the local mall or haberdashers such as MS McClellan to pick out just the right outfit may be in order.

and the to work for Road Crew On Monday...

Gee Joe, could that also be the DUI pick up crew?

If my friends saw me wearing orange they would put in a call to Mobile Crisis.

I just wore my Not Dubya button instead.

Chad - DUI and Orange

Well yes Chad you cold wear your orange on the DUI road crew too...

and Gerald Jones might have some excess official orange uniforms he might be willing to sell since he is an idiot and was caught with a burnt out license lamp and smoking dope with a recruit in the car last night...

How stupid can one person be???

Cheech Fulmer and Gerald Chong?

Let's see how this plays out with our guys doping it up with recruits on the official visits.

Assuming Gerald Jones doesn't get kicked off the team, maybe our new offensive formation featuring his talents could be called the G - Bong, including gatoraid filled waterpipes, with a souvenier stand called the Big Orange Head Shop, a new fight song called Rasta Top, the team could run through a THC formation, and a bleary eyed doped up dog called . . . Smokey, for a mascot.
