Lunchtime blogging continues

Janet, Janet, you aren't exactly raising our international image, there, are you?

Totally not related to Janet Napolitano, is Judge Napolitano's book about race in America. He made an interesting point today on an interview with local AM talker Brian Thomas (no relation, either): when you define a group as non-persons (like Dred Scott or unborn babies) you can do whatever you want with them. Ouch. The founders came from the mindset that slaves weren't people. We, as a nation have changed so much that now we have fetuses in utero, not babies. Take that, Margaret Sanger...oh wait, she believed some people weren't persons, too, didn't she?
