Well Said

This column in Front Page by Johannes L. Jacobse has found the words I have been searching for. It is a thoughtful piece on how New Orleans- and other places- might have come to be in the condition they are- hurricane notwithstanding, of course.

New Orleans: The Follies Of The Great Society

[[ The blame game is on, led by the Angry Left. They follow Gramsci's dictum: progress is incremental; if you cannot win the hearts and minds of the people by reason, then attack the moral credibility of your opponent. It's an old trick that has proved effective in the past but is slowly losing steam. The quick and generous aid of many American gives lie to the charge that America is a racist nation. And the spectacle of blacks preying on blacks in the Superdome and on the streets of New Orleans gives the lie to the idea that blacks constitute a monolithic "community" and that people like Rev. Jesse Jackson or Rev. Al Sharpton speak for them all. ]]

True. True. True.

Great article, kmg---thanks for sharing it and demonstrating once again that the essence of blogging is passing on worthy news and commentary that remains hidden by the MSM.
