To those of you who were wondering whether I was going to comment on the “black agenda” memo that has created a huge controversy in the Atlanta mayor’s race, I defer to my colleague Jay Bookman, who has written a brilliant post on the subject. I agree with every thing Bookman says.
Since my move to Washington, I haven’t kept up with local politics as much as I used to. But I find the memo deeply disturbing. It has no place in current-day politics.
