Senate finally apologizes for ignoring lynchings
It took over a century, but the Senate finally passed a resolution denouncing the lynchings of African-Americans. AMERICAblog wonders, tho, who the 20 Senators were that didn't sign on to co-sponsor the bill. "In the year 2005, Senators would not go on record issuing an apology for lynching. If there weren't so many gay bashers and advocates of using violence against judges on Capitol Hill, that might be a surprise."
UPDATE: Chris Geidner posted a good explanation of what's going on, and has been updating senators who were added at the last minute. (AMERICAblog; Chris Geidner...Law Dork)
