For a slow day, why not a piece of good news.
I mentioned earlier
that the the late Roosevelt Thompson,
the Little Rock native killed in a car accident shortly before he was to begin study as a Rhodes Scholar, was due to be honored at his alma mater. The recognition grew partially from a campus controversy over whether slavery advocate John Calhoun should continue to be the namesake for a residential college. Calhoun remains, but now it will embrace a Little Rock native and Central High graduate who held such promise.
Has it really been 32 years since the awful news? It still pains.
