There is an interesting article in the latest Vanity Fair magazine on reparations. It is written by the commie Christopher Hitchens with whom I have nothing in common except our loathing of Bill Clinton. However, he makes some good points in favor of reparations. One point is that the money won't go to individuals but into some kind of foundation that would address itself to improving, among other things, the quality of education of blacks. At least in Hitchens' plan none of the money would end up being spent on gifts for Jesse Jackson's mistresses or to pay off Al Sharpton's law suit.
