Trying to Understand a Massacre

In July, I wrote that an international group is investigating the 1979 killings of five people on the streets of Greensboro by the Klan and their neo-Nazi allies, who then went free although their deeds were captured on videotape. Now the local sponsors of that investigation have gone public with their plan. There is a lot of truth yet to be told about the Klan-Nazi killings, and the local group seems serious and sincere.

Like many people here, I used to think we had talked enough about this nasty bit of history. I wrote this column when I changed my mind.

Lisa has decamped for Arizona, where she will luxuriate at a spa with her sister for the next four days. Here at home, the kids and I are awaiting snow.
