Plenty of postings here for the weekend. I didn't want to add more but I couldn't pass this up. This clip came from the Washington Post. The comments were made by William J. Bennet on a radio talk show.

Bennett, a former U.S. education secretary and national drug policy director, is under fire from Democrats, civil rights leaders, black conservatives and, as of yesterday, the White House and the Republican Party for saying Wednesday that "you could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would go down."

...Bennett released a defiant statement saying critics unfairly had pulled his comment out of context: "A thought experiment about public policy, on national radio, should not have received the condemnations it has."

Partisan jabs and moral outrage followed.
