Screw the N-word - Debate this story...

Melissa Gaffney's blog today reminds us that there is a Middletown HRC Meeting tonight to rehash the same tired old, boring subject of "the n-word".  In the meantime, how do you feel about this Holland Township family angry that supermarket won't personalize cake for their son?

It seems that Heath and Deborah Campbell decided that of all of the names in the baby book, the names best fitting for their offspring were JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell and Adolf Hitler Campbell. I think the sadest part of the story is right below the second picture "Young Adolf Hitler Campbell will be getting a cake from Wal-Mart this year."

Should ShopRight, a private corporation be allowed to refuse (discriminate) against these people based on the name of a child? Should parents be allowed to name their kids any way they see fit? Does Wal-Mart make their cakes in China with toxic lead and poisonous milk?
