The question for FAMU
Florida A&M University should think for a moment before selling its new law school to the highest bidder. Tampa, Orlando, Lakeland and Daytona Beach each have promised millions of dollars in the bidding war, but the only issue for FAMU should be where a law school best serves students. That focus shouldn't be blurred by old racial resentments or by the awe of dollar signs.
Republicans have broken their tax cuts up into several pieces, each targeted to specific voter groups. But politics, not fairness, seems to be the goal.
George W.'s anti-intellectualism
Rich, well-connected John F. Kennedy was educated at an exclusive prep school and an Ivy League college. Lyndon Johnson, his bootstrap-elevated, double-negative-using vice president ("I didn't go to Harvard; I went to San Marcos State Teachers College!"), despised him for it. LBJ saw JFK as a spoiled brat who parlayed his father's power and money into a political career.
