RITA'S RAINBOW RIBBON:  We would not be linking to but for its coverage of a dispute between Latino groups and the Kennedy Center President which has now turned ugly, with the latter having requested of the former that he perform an anatomically impossible act after having sent a letter to the President and others calling for changes in the Honors selection process, given that only two Hispanics have been chosen among the 170+ honorees since 1978. (Among those weighing in is former fictional President/Justice/Congressman/Imperial Senator Jimmy Smits.)

For potential inductees, they've suggested Rita Moreno, Joan Baez, Carlos Santana, Ruben Blades, Julio Iglesias, Gloria Estefan and Edward James Olmos for future recognition.

    Well, sure, being accused of bigotry is certainly more upsetting than being a victim of bigotry.
