Do you mean idiocies like the FBI's identification of a "white male" on the
telephone in the Atlanta bombing? I can accept male--most, but not all, of
the time, you can guess a person's gender from the voice. But skin color?
I guess the FBI must be more high tech than I give them credit for.
Of course, the caller might have said, "Hi. I am a white male."
