This week, a bit of a digression: We’ll continue our look at the Age of Reagan next week, but today, we’ll follow one of our textbooks off on an astonishing side track that seems mostly to exist because Bob Jones University is located in South Carolina.

Let’s have a half-round of applause for the brave souls in the Tennessee House of Representatives, who boldly voted Wednesday to express “profound regret” for both slavery and for segregation, although the chamber couldn’t quite bring itself to actually apologize for either.
