Thurmond's Biracial Daughter Seeks to Join Confederacy Group

That's the headline in this New York Times story.

In a statement, Ms. Washington-Williams said: "It is important for all Americans to have the opportunity to know and understand their bloodline. Through my father's line, I am fortunate to trace my heritage back to the birth of our nation and beyond. On my mother's side, like most African-Americans, my history is broken by the course of human events."

Not much to say, but, "Oh, wow." And if we didn't know it before, this is not your average retired 78-year-old schoolteacher.
