Richard Miniter adds to Paul Mirengoff’s account of last night’s event at the Heritage Foundation with Justice Thomas. Here is a highlight:
At a gathering of black lawyers, Thomas, from the podium, could see a man in the front row, with his arms crossed and his face cross. Naturally, he shot his hand up as soon as the question session began. A long speech in lieu of a question followed, essentially asking how he can interpret the law by relying so heavily on the Founding Fathers when they did not recognize the rights of blacks?
