A white supremacist from North Dakota may hate part of himself now that he has found out the results of a DNA test. Craig Cobb agreed to the test for Trisha Goddard's national TV talk show.
The results show Cobb is 86 percent European and 14 percent black or sub-Saharan African.
Goddard laughed and tried to fist-bump Cobb and saying, "You've got a little black in you."
Cobb says he's unsure of the results and will take more DNA tests.
He says the 14 percent is what he calls "statistical noise."

With the water running in the sink of one of the KFI kitchens as I scrubbed out the community microwave, I was approached by one of the women from the accounting department. She said, "Wow! That's a real mess." I told her that I'm sure the accounting department did it. She said they probably did do it adding, "I'm so short, I can't tell if I leave a mess behind." She laughed and I chuckled. Then she said, "We're all a bunch of bitches." We laughed some more.
Then she said, "I guess I shouldn't say we're all bitches, having just taken the sensitivity training." Just then, another woman joined the conversation saying, "Yeah, I'm a midget, too."
"Oh. You said 'midgets.'"
"Yeah, what'd you think I said?"
I said, "Thirty-three years of wearing headphones has taken a toll on my ears."
"KFI has Rush Limbaugh blabbing for three hours. And they never interrupted the show to cover the LAX shooting on Friday. Three straight hours. I couldn't believe it." (Doug McIntyre, KABC).
When today's shooting happened in Terminal 3 at LAX, we naturally called Nancy Castles and her staff at LAX.
While the excrement was hitting the fan, we sat on hold with Castles' staff waiting to get the latest information about the shooting. At the same time, we sent reporters Steve Gregory and Michael Crozier to the scene.
After 20 minutes of holding, one of Castles' staff members came back on the phone to say they were not makin
So we took a look at their Twitter account. Nothin
Without the help of Castles and her staff, who could not be bothered to do their jobs, we were able to confirm the shooting.
Needles to say, I was very irritated, pissed off, really with the less-than-stellar help we got from Castles and her Twitter crew.
So I sent her an email. I'd put money on it that it'll be ignored. Here it is:
You guys need to be more accessible to the media. This "follow us on Twitter" doesn't work because we cannot get clarification or hold you accountable. Plus, your updates on Twitter were painfully slow and uninformative.
Twitter is a supplement. You are doin
What you've shown is that you are not necessary to the organization and can be replaced by the guy who runs your Twitter account.

Just in time for Halloween. This isn't really for kids but some kids may enoy it.
Yeah, I know it sounds like I'm a name dropper but a friend of mine, actress June Lockhart, is in the news. I'm very proud that NASA has honored June with the Exceptional Public Achievement Medal. June is a true NASA geek. Maybe it came from her Lost in Space days.
June is a fellow member of the Radio And Television News Association of Southern California. She is one of the most positive and happy people I have ever known.
The KFI newsroom gets phone calls from all types of people, all day and all night.
Here's one of them now.
Ma'am, please let us know how we can help you.
