Not Quite Total Fail, After All

I saw this quote today:

This is America, where a white Catholic male Republican judge was murdered on his way to greet a Democratic Jewish woman member of Congress, who was his friend. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year-old Mexican-American gay college student, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon, all eulogized by our African-American president.
-- Mark Shields, PBS
I'm not sure how accurate it is, but I like the concept.  At least our diversity isn't totally   dysfunctional.
