Larisa Alexandrovna seems to have just awakened to the fact that the American population is sleepwalking. I think what happened is a big problem, but don’t see why it matters that he is black. It creeps me out only slightly more than Ike Skelton’s sneering attitude toward the protesters during yesterday’s briefing by Patraeus. It’s an outrage regardless of race, and I think good people should be outraged. But I think that a lot, and don’t hold out as much hope for organic outrage as I used to. Too much comfort around here the last generation or two. Sorry, Larisa, that you’ve just tuned in to how tuned out your fellow Americans are.
