Re: The Central Park Five
Saw Ken Burns on The Daily Show tonight and resolved to watch it this weekend. Amazon has it on Instant View for about $4.
I was too young to know of the incident when it happened, so I can't really comment on it yet, but I'm really disappointed in NYC's unwillingness to provide any restitution to these men who wrongly lost so much of their lives.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
