Controversy Du Jour?


Clarence Thomas accepted some gifts. Best I can tell there’s nothing illegal about that and he dutifully reported every gift he took. Does anyone really think that because he accepted an expensive Bible his view on Roe v. Wade or original intent is going to change? Or is this just another attempt to prosecute Thomas for the crime of thinking while black? If I’m missing something here, I know Cornerites will tell me.
