TRADITIONALLY, the graduation edition of The Cavalier Daily has held two types of opinion columns. Some people write a normal column about gun control, the honor system, or U.S.-Cuban relations. It's a way to deflate the maudlin weepiness of the graduation paper. Others write a more personal column, one that buys into the edition's sentimentality. If you've read my column before at all, you should expect the first kind. I'm too practical, too logical to be swayed by teary-eyed emotionalism. I'd never write that second kind of column.
OCCASIONALLY, I make the mistake of believing that this country will one day reach some kind of sane equilibrium with respect to racial issues. But every time I make that tiny error, some person or organization does or says something so monumentally at odds with any hopes for a healthy society that my ever-slim optimism disappears entirely. Rarely, however, does something happen that is quite as overboard as this.
