1. It has always seemed to me that jumping on such things as Mr. Holbert’s original text as racist serves only to keep the stereotype alive by giving it importance. A case of Shakespeare’s “Methinks the lady doth protest too much” as it is used now, as “proof” of what is not true. Only old fogeys like me and professional haters know the connection these days. Be wise and let those particular references die the natural death of forgetfulness.2. While I deplore the danger posed by the Keystone Kops Service (or is The Frat Boys Club?), Mr. Obama’s casual relationship with truth and law is reaping in a very personal way what he has so assiduously sown.
