Even if I were to disparage the Cincinnati protestors (which I'm not prepared to do), even if I agreed with Ridley's assessment that police killing black men was somehow acceptable because those men had records or were otherwise of lesser human caliber, in what way should those men be used to diminish what the author sees as the accomplishments of Rice and Powell?

DICK CHENEY and Donald Rumsfeld were, are, old-school relics. As a black man with a Ph.D. and no criminal record (no doubt one of the "good" individuals Ridley would consider ascended), I find his simple division of African-Americans into "good blacks" and "niggers" reprehensible.

Predictably, niggers immediately abandoned him. No more can we allow the crowning moment in our history to live in shadow, just as we cannot allow the deeds of our most accomplished to be overshadowed by the antics of our least ambitious.

Hasan said having a beard was part of his religious belief. Observers noted this was consistent with investigators' concluding he had acted alone.
