    let's not overplay our hand.  He didn't say that "negroes" were better off as slaves, as you quoted him saying.  He merely wondered if that was the case.

    To be confused about whether "cotton picking" slaves possibly had it better than today's AA's is plenty bad enough.  We don't need to embellish the quote to score additional political points because, in the long run, we don't need to exaggerate the quotes of people like Bundy.

    Anyway, sorry to correct you on this because I tend to enjoy your diaries but I think correcting the quote is the fair thing to do.

    PS  Keep  being a voice of reason on Israel.  You do great work on that.
