(And on an almost thoroughly unrelated subject: I was reading excerpts from the Supreme Court decision on school assignment plans and came across a passage in Justice Breyer’s dissent. Somebody needs to send him some copies of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. He’s gone and slandered the great Orval Faubus. Wrote Breyer, lamenting the damage done to the Brown decision: “Three years after that decision was handed down, the governor of Arkansas ordered state militia to block the doors of a white schoolhouse so that black children could not enter.” Sheesh. He was just trying to keep the peace. Check the ‘Crat’s clips.)
