This morning started out as any other morning. I got up, made some coffee, and went downstairs to get my New York Herald. Boy did I love that newspaper. Yeah it had its ups and downs-its pseudo-liberalism caused it to get race issues wrong, but who can ever get race issues right? The New York Herald was still, in my opinion, the best there was.

I settled down with my coffee, turned on the television to Good Morning Today!, and picked up my New York Herald.Nothing could have prepared me for what was to follow. I couldn't believe my eyes. The headline read, "Blacks Outscore Whites on LSAT: Lawsuit Threatened."
