NICE SYNCHRONICITY: What does Jesse Jackson think about the whole Jayson Blair affair? I don’t know, but I did find this quote amusing:
“They choose culture and legacy over excellence, and it’s insulting.”
–Rev. Jesse Jackson, who said he will protest the selection of Mike Shula as Alabama football coach over Sylvester Croom. Both are Alabama grads. Shula is white, Croom black.
Geez, Jesse, Howell Raines just said there are things that are more important than excellence! How can you argue with the editor of the New York Times?
