Oops, they did get the watermelon reference.

I guess students are smarter than the folks drafting exams at Bellevue Community College.

This question on a practice math test raised the ire of some of the "diversity" students:

"Condoleezza holds a watermelon just over the edge of the roof of the 300-foot Federal Building, and tosses it up with a velocity of 20 feet per second." The question went on to ask when the watermelon will hit the ground, based on a formula provided. (see the whole article: lezza)

The college apologized but I think the damage is done. I was just in the process of drafting a post about my friend Osama who has been "camping" in the mountains and trying to count the number of camels he has - but it's just not funny anymore. Not Cool.

They could just rewrite the question again, replacing "watermelon" with "August 6, 2001 President's Daily Briefing."
