THURSDAY'S GREGALOGUE: BOYCOTTING THE BOYCOTTERS

It's getting worse people.

Last night I told you about the SF mayor banning city employees from traveling to Arizona. But now, in a move meant to bring the state to its knees, the Montreal pop band "stars" has tweeted that until its "racist new immigration law is repealed," they will boycott the state.

Arizona's reaction? One of devastation.

((PLAY SOT OF HYSTERICAL HIPPIES CRYING AND HUGGING TREES))

Wow, they're taking it harder than I thought.

Look, I love Canada for many reasons (it's where I keep my winter clothes), but they don't share a porous border with a troubled country with limited opportunities for its hardworking people. In 2008, do you know how many people illegally immigrated to Canada? I could count it on my hand, if I had 120,000 fingers.

There are almost five times as many already in Arizona.

And let's not forget what happens to Mexicans who try to seek refugee status in Canada. According to the New York Times, in 2006 just 28 percent of claims made by Mexicans were approved in Canada, compared with 47 percent from all nationalities.

Wonder what Canadians have against them?

Probably nothing -but even Yanks can play this game.

But look, racism sucks in all forms. I mean, imagine if you were a government who passed a law that actually excluded an entire race - say the Chinese - from entering your country altogether! For like 25 years!

I mean, that's gross. And, back in the 1920's, Canadian.

Finally, to all you boycotty bands: focus. In Iran, homosexuality is punishable by death, and human rights groups estimate some 4,000 gays have been executed since the Islamic revolution in 1979. In the summer of 2005, two teens were hanged in public, for being gay.

Pick real injustices - instead of the stylish ones - to rail against, and the response might not be stifled laughter.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophone.
