For John, BLUF: x"The past is never dead. It's not even past."—Wm Faulkner. Nothing to see here; just move along.
With the boomlet for Vice President Joe Biden beginning to appear, it is time to review how he stood against our own Senator Ed Brooke on the issue of Busing. This Politico Magazine article by Professor Jason Sokol,♠ does that—"How a Young Joe Biden Turned Liberals Against Integration".
The gist of it is "Forty years ago, the Senate supported school busing—until a 32-year-old changed his mind.".
That 32 year old would be Freshman Senator Joe Biden.
