    Shirley Sherrod and the unprosecuted murder of her father by a white farmer in Georgia would have been the perfect topic which US Attorney General Eric Holder allowed to slip away for some pathetic reason.

    The Obama administration (Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack) quickly fired Shirley Sherrod based on Breitbart's half-assed, heavily-editted video on Sherrod's epiphany about racism giving it an antithetical meaning.

    (A wonderful opportunity to confront this country's demon of racism was postponed but NOT destroyed.  Let's have that conversation NOW!)
