Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Separate v. Equal  

One of the consequences of Brown v Board of Ed at Fifty is that the notion that separate is inherently unequal is now enshrined not only in law but in the general consciousness. Any distinction is presumed unequal until proven legitimate (or corrective, by directly benefitting a protected class).

Would anyone consider educational mainstreaming without this? Or be reflexively leery of quarantining the infectious? Or segregating violent and non-violent prisoners?

So - assuming we accept that the wall of separation is constitutionally legitimate - what does this tell us about the relationship of church and state?
