Mr. Buzzkill is back.
Remember lawyer Alfred G. Rava, the Grinch who sued the Oakland A's for sex discrimination for giving out floppy sunhats to women on Mother's Day as a part of a breast cancer awareness promotion?
Well, now he's challenging a California ski resort for offering "Furlough Fridays" -- discounted ski lift tickets to state workers who have been forced to take a furlough because of the sagging economy. Rava says the discount violates state civil rights laws.
The state legislature is now busy slamming a bill through that protects such promotions.
Still, you really wonder if Rava's dry cleaner is putting too much starch in his briefs.
