No place for nuance

Eddie called himself a private detective, although all he really did was repossess cars. He would show up around 4 p.m. at the cafe where I worked after school, have his usual cup of coffee, and tell me a thing or two about what we used to call "real life." One day he told me how he used to load his coat pockets with brass doorknobs, which he used to "put out the lights" of homosexuals. I was 16 and getting an education of sorts.

Hand-in-hand

The tables were lit with candles and the lights were down low. The congregation processed out of the church and into the parish hall to sit down for a Middle-Eastern style meal: olives, hummus, pita and dates.

Donald Sterling has been treated unfairly

Donald Sterling has been treated unjustly; I've said it before, and I remain incalcitrant pursuant to that opinion. Mr. Sterling is being used by race-mongers and melanin pimps as validation of institutional racism - which loosely translated means the modern day equivalents of Joseph Goebbels are using Mr. Sterling's private conversation as proof that in America rich white men are impeding progress for blacks.

No place for nuance

The term "moral suasion" has fallen into disuse. Its heyday came during the Eisenhower administration when the genial president, a bit soft on institutional racism, failed to denounce the continuing attempt of Southern politicians to keep their schools - and everything else - segregated. Now, I'd like to revive it and apply it to Barack Obama. With some moral suasion, he could end America's shameful practice of capital punishment.

It’s only a part-time job – right?

Why don't I start by confirming something you always suspected? A state legislator's job is one that you can turn into almost as little or as much work as you want! Maybe you already knew this secret: Unlike the Congress up in D.C., the Georgia legislature has always been a "part-time" venture. We're in session about three months of the year. Doesn't that sound easy? The idea was to allow the members, who were mostly farmers in the beginning, to finish their business in Atlanta and return home in time for growing season. Washington used ...
