A READER WRITES: “It has begun. Read Krugman’s column today and let’s see how long it takes for the Lott story to become, in the hands of the media, the racial equivalent of the ‘southern gun culture’ stories that ran after the pre-Columbine round of school shootings.”

Perhaps Krugman will take on the race-baiting that has marked recent Democratic politicking in his next column.

UPDATE: It’s not just Krugman — and not just America.
