Frank Rich on Clarence Thomas ... er, so to speak

I want to direct you to a fine essay by Frank Rich about Clarence Thomas' interview on 60 minutes, his new book and book tour. You can read it here.

Here's an excerpt:
We are always at a crossroads with race in America, and so here we are again. The rollout of Justice Thomas's memoir, "My Grandfather's Son," is not happening in a vacuum. It follows a Supreme Court decision (which he abetted) outlawing voluntary school desegregation plans in two American cities. It follows yet another vote by the Senate to deny true Congressional representation to the majority black District of Columbia. It follows the decision by the leading Republican presidential candidates to snub a debate at a historically black college as well as the re-emergence of a low-tech lynching noose in Jena, La.

I'm just so happy that the NYTimes has made all articles available for free. You used to have to pay for Frank Rich's articles. But, no more.
