And a P.S. on AG Holder’s desire for an honest conversation on race.
I think it was in 1992 or ’93 I was attending a conference in then-Czechoslovakia, in a town called Swit (now Slovakia.)
There I met a delightful lady, South African author Frances Kendall.
Kendall had just published a book called, “The SeXY Factor: Gender differences at home and at work” about, as the title suggests, gender differences.
This was a bit of a daring subject, at a time when feminists were denying there were any differences in gender beyond basic plumbing.
Kendall told me that friends had told her, “This is great! Now why don’t you do one on race?”
Her answer, “No way! Everybody who touches that subject gets burned.”
Let’s have that conversation some other time.
