I never understood the 'loose shoes' part...

Earl Butz has died. Butz was Gerald Ford’s Agriculture Secretary, and was eventually fired for being a racist scumbag, or at least for being one in public. You’d think that someone with that name would be a little more sensitive about making fun of other people. The above article is notable for having the full text of all his ‘jokes.’

Yes, I hope they buried him in loose shoes.

Did you know that his nephew Dave was an all star tackle for the Washington Redskins. Seemed a little nasty.

Come to think of it

Name another Cabinet secretary from that administration. And are you sure that he wasn't a Nixon holdover. I seem to recall the joke from before I graduated in 1973. I suppose I can wikipedia this.

OK, I should have read your link

which looks like it was cribbed from wikipedia -- word for word. But anyway, I was half right.

And he went to prison for cheating on his taxes. That was news to me.
