Eugene Robinson on Sotomayor
In this column, Eugene Robinson, columnist for the Washington Post, talks about the Sotomayor nomination. In particular, he discusses the Ricci case, which critics have charged show her as a reverse racist, in fact hinged on the point of law as to whether the city of New Haven, CT had acted legally in cancelling a test. The decision was that they did. Note, the case was NOT to decide which firefighters were qualified.
