the jeff sessions that i know is no racist


u.s. sen. jeff sessions of alabama, president trump’s pick to be the next attorney general of the united states, a key cabinet position of great importance, is unusually well qualified for the job. i have no doubt that he will be approved by his colleagues on the senate judiciary committee and confirmed by the entire senate. i am aware that there are some who have expressed doubts about sen. sessions, apparently on the basis of vague allegations of racism.perhaps those allegations arise because of mere partisan animus, or maybe because he was born in selma, ala., the site of great conflict in the civil rights era of the sixties. but the ever-deepening and widening partisan divide, which seems to be driving us all to opposite poles, is never a reason to stereotype anyone, or to ign unwarran

gorsuch can get right what scalia got wrong


washington — with an asperity born of exasperation, justice antonin scalia once wrote, “if you want aspirations, you can read the declaration of independence,” but “there is no such philosophizing in our constitution,” which is “a practical and pragmatic charter of government.” scalia was wrong, and much depends on neil gorsuch not resembling scalia in this regard. gorsuch can endorse scalia’s originalism, construing the constitution’s text and structure as it was understood by its framers and ratifiers, without embracing scalia’s misunderstanding of this:there is no philosophizing in the constitution — until the founders’ philosophy is infused into it by construing the document as a charter of government for a nation that is, in lincoln’s formulation, dedicated to a proposition that scali
