An Independence Day thought

As we prepare to celebrate our freedom this July 4th, I thought I’d share the following letter to the editor about the Ricci decision, by Carol Polley of Eden Prairie, Minn., published in yesterday’s New York Times:

To the Editor:

If a kicker’s football fails to reach the goalposts, he does not get a do-over with a shorter distance between himself and the goalposts.

If a student does not pass the test, he does not get a do-over with easier questions.

When my house is on fire I want the best firefighter, and I don’t care what color he or she is.
