Things That Need Saying

I found two editorials in the Los Angeles Times to be a breath of fresh air this morning. Some not quite politically correct things that needed to be said:

The first one takes a look at that feel- so- good ballot initiative many of you couldn't help but vote for back in 2006: Jessica's Law. I voted against it.

The second one deals with black on black violence that became particularly obvious in the Oakland riots over the BART shooting: They sure scream when a black kid is killed by a cop but the silence is often deafening when black kids kill each other.

It may have needed saying, but the local bloggers (99% socialists) won't be commenting. Thanks, Fred.

Yup. When a white southern governor fifty years ago tried to bar Negro children from entering the school-house door, it was a horrible thing.

And when generations of African-American parents fail to make sure their children attend school and do their homework, it an even more horrible thing. It is a self-inflicted wound.

Progress doesn't fall down from the sky or come on a choo-choo train from Washington, D.C.

Progress takes hard work. Some people are willing to do what it takes. I wish more people did.
