Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
One can always count on Bob Herbert to find shocking isolated incidents of racism. It's important work and I'm glad he does it and brings the awful stuff to our attention, but, at the same time, I'm glad that not every columnist is a Bob Herbert.
