It appears that both of them took advantage of Affirmative Action in their undergrad as well as law school education.

Sony. All Baloney.

"Sony no Baloney" comes from, if memory serves, ads for the the portable TVs, a little before the introduction of the Walkman. This was of course well before Sony got into the movie business. The pay disparity in the movie business is perhaps the biggest of any industry. Some stars make multi-millions per film, and as we see, the unseen executives make millions. But many workers on movies work for NO pay. And rich elite in the business are outspoken for higher minimum wage, and correcting wage inequality - for eveyone else.
Unfortunately, the CIA also missed (a) the fall of the Soviet Union, (b) WMD in Iraq, (c) Iran's nuclear program, (d) N. Korea's nuclear program, etc.. One wonders what we get for the $billions they get.
And get 100% paid-for health care.

I was in the Army in the early 1970's, when the number of women increased drastically. I overheard two instructors (in a class room setting) say the woman were not doing their homework as well as the men, as the women were having two or three "dates" a night, then getting released from the Army when they got pregnant.

Ann has it exactly right.
hey, Keep. A news flash for you: Rove and Bush have not been in power for six years now. I know it's hard to believe, but the are not in power any more. So there is now room for another architect.

One would have thought - I know I did when in college int he 1960's - the university faculty and administrators were trying to teach objectinve, critical thinking. So they would be the least likely to jump to an emotional decision. Not this time. Not at Duke.

As great as Dr. Sowell is, we have a democracy, not an Empire.
I don't think LBJ was racist, like so many of his southern Dem contemporaries. You are correct that LBJ's War on Poverty (a) cost of money, and (b) made many blacks worse, but that was not his intention. I also don't think he intended to lose the was in Vietnam.

State ruen lotteries return only about 50% of betting to winners. This would be unconciable for for-profit casino or race tracks. Casinos and race tracks are controlled as to what they can advertise, but the state-run lotteries can and often do advertise that anyone can be a millionaire.
