Beer Fest Outcome

Law Professor Ann Althouse had what I thought was a good post on the Beer Fest on the White House lawn.  On the other hand, she got a lot of push-back on this in the comments.

My number one take-away on this is that one should always be polite to people in power, be they professors or police officers.  If they get out of line, bide your time and then use the power of the system to get them back in line.  Remember, your grade or your life could be on the line.

PS:  And why was Vice President Biden there?

Yes, a good post. It didn't seem some of the commentators thought it was. I think the nation has a differing view then here in Massachusetts.

It wasn't that both men were wrong, but quite possible both men were right has been the way I've been thinking about for the past two weeks.

I like'd Gates from his PBS specials in which he traced the family trees of African-Americans, while many of us search marriage/birth records or Ellis Island documents, African-Americans who are the decedents of slaves search through bills of sale of their ancestors.
