That's Mr. James Crow to You

It would be nice to think that a Senate candidate warning that making lunch counters serve Negroes is a slippery slope has just committed political suicide. There are definitely parts of the country where it would be. Is Kentucky one of those places? I'm going to withhold judgment and not make any bold predictions.

Well, at least Arlen Specter is out of the way which makes this look like two steps forward and one step back.. hopefully. Do you get the feeling his father named him after Ayn?

There have been rumors to that effect. The main criterion for being an objectivist hero seems to be being really, really into yourself, so the shoe fits.
