A very well thought out reflection. Since Justice Thomas’s first day on the national scene I have been amazed at the nature and vituperation of what liberals and the black civil rights establishment say about him.
My friend and colleague Frank Mankiewicz, a old-fashioned liberal, who is otherwise a real gentleman, truly believes that Justice Thomas is one of the most evil men in America!
All of Justice Thomas’ works, whether written or spoken, have been impressive in their thoughtfulness and humanity. More than being a superb jurist, his is a voice to be listened to on all matters affecting our society and the way we live.
I clearly remember, right after being graduated from high school, the horror of the Mississippi murders. I remember Rainey, his cheek bulging with chaw, smirking about the murders. Yet he and The Reverend Jackson and others of his ilk, share, as you point out, a frightful symmetry in that they both believe that blacks must know their place.p>I enjoy the Prowler.

I thought the column was well written until the personal attack on Jesse Jackson. Just as I believe it was wrong for Belafonte to attack Powell on his politics, I believe it is wrong for you to do the same to Jackson. I thought that the age of the “politics of personal destruction” were over?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
