You have a doctor at the DMV? What on earth for?



Could be for a physical requirement like the eye exam here in the states.

He was offended by what you wrote. You'd rather try to win the internet than apologize. That is what I mean when I said it gets right to the nut.



Strange as it may seem to you, I only have the urge to apologize for something when I've actually done that something for which someone expects I should apologize. I said nothing racist or bigoted. I criticized a country; more specifically, I criticized one of its social institutions, one that just about everyone in the world agrees is harmful to that country. In return, I was accused of racism and bigotry by a person who apparently inhabits that country.

I cannot be responsible for someone being unreasonably offended by something I said; that is not under my control. I don't know what on earth you mean by "winning the internet", but I doubt I can do that; Al Gore holds the patent.

Manufactured indignation cheapens real, justified indignation when the latter becomes appropriate. The PC Person Who Cries "Wolf" makes it harder, in the long run, to oppose genuine bigotry, hate speech, and racism. There's plenty of that in the world to get exercised about, rather than hunting down every single solitary human utterance that could POSSIBLY be construed, or misconstrued, as politically incorrect.

I'm not going to JerryLogan you. We see it differently, and it will end there.

An ophtalmologist, or allegedly so, who adminsiters eye tests.

I don't know if that's the case any longer in mex City. I got my last two licenses (10 years all told) in Mexico State (not the same thing, though they're next to each other), and the eye test is gone. They just ask whether you need glasses.

What a scam, somebody with a 6th grade education can give a DMV eye test, its not a doctors office. Read the eye chart and check peripheral vision, its not rocket science.

Be careful, he may demand you apologize for bigoted remarks to DMV workers everywhere!

(For those of you in Rio Linda, that is demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.)

Hmmm....

I think we haven't heard the last of JL.

He's either checking to see if the suspension is over, or is taking notes....

Perhaps we should re-name the suspension list to the 'Jerry Logan Hall of Fame' ?
