    regret? Never wished you had said something differently?

    Jesse Jackson once called New York "Hymie town". So, shall we brand him an anti-semite for life? Dismiss all the good he ever did? Should we demand, as the diarist did, that whatever organizations he is a part of immediately drop him and have nothing to do with him ever again?

    As the diarist did - should we say that anyone who supports Jesse Jackson is an anti-semite apologist? Should we proclaim that any forum in which someone supports Jesse Jackson has become a refuge for anti-semites?

    I did not excuse his behavior - I said that his remark was racist and offensive, but that if you examine his history, this was just that - one racist and offensive remark that was said out of ignorance and not out of an intention to be racist.

    I suspect if we were to kick out every member of Daily Kos who ever expressed anything in a comment that was an ignorant expression of a racist, sexist, or anti-semitic meme, then I guess you and Kos would be the only members.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
