DIRT IN DALLAS
Catalyst May Issue 1998
Catholics who eat meat on Good Friday will receive free concert tickets. That’s what listeners of KDMX radio in Dallas were told on Good Friday. We didn’t think it was funny and so we let them know.
Rick Hinshaw, the league’s director of communications, placed a call to the station and was told that this was just “tongue-in-cheek.” She defended the action by saying that one of the show’s hosts was Jewish and that he also parodies Jewish practices. How sweet. By this logic, Hitler was just a joker: there were lots of people he didn’t like.
