Half Hearted Prank Or Bona Fide Racism

Jeff Vandergrift of CBS WFNY placed an on-air prank call to a local Chinese restaurant, pretending a customer making phone ordering at noon of April 20th, 2007. WFNY covers New York, New Jersey. Also on the air at the time with Vandergrift was Dan Lay.

When asked whether he would like to pick up or deliver, Jeff Vandergrift told the female receptionist 'Should I come to your restaurant, so I can see you naked', 'that way, I can see your hot Asian spicy ass', 'Spicy ass', etc. At the point, an elder male employee took over the phone, and Jeff told the old man he wanted 'Chinese egg roll in your pants', 'told the young Asian ass I wanted touch her ass'. Vandergrift also used words such as SOB, Chinaman repeatedly.

Imus had been fired for his stupidity. For bottom feed small fish Vandergrift & Lay, a rather little known coward, being fired for work stupidity would probably bring them career high name recognition. Therefore, we no longer want Vandergrift & Lay fired, we want Vandergrift & Lay punished by the legal system based on the offense he made. Sooner or later, one or another, someone in the society will have to pay for Vandergrift and Lay's arrogance and foolishness.

The producer of the program is Lance Otani, a Japanese. The wife of Jeff Vandergrift is Natasha Yi, a Korean.

Eminent Domain in 1083

The first Chinese law regulating eminent domain was approved and announced in Yuanfeng 6th year of the Northern Song Dynasty (1083). Before the law, the common practice of the Chinese government is to compensate the evicted residents by allowing them a place in another location, plus waiving of taxes for a certain years. However, this method usually can't guarantee consistent living level especially for those originally live in a prosperous place. One emperor of Song, Tai Zong, lemented that although his palace was too narrow, but he had to resist the expansion plan being afraid of seeing people would have to move.

The 1083 law on eminent domain states that the government is responsible to compensate those evicted with comparable location as well as monetary reimbursement. The value of the compensation would be the average of the original purchase value and current accessed value. According to record, 120 families were moved on eminent domain in June of the same year. They were totally reimbursed at 20600 Min, or 171 Guan per family which is about $6,000 today's US dollars.
