BLAIR SAGA CONTINUES: This is just amazing. Howard Kurtz is reporting that Jayson Blair is proposing to write a book called “Burning Down My Master’s House” in which he refers to the New York Times as his “slavemaster.”

Kurtz says: “Blair casts his story as one of ‘a young black man’ told he would never succeed ‘by everyone from his white second-grade teacher to his editor at the Times, who rose from the fields and got a place in the master’s house and then burned it down the only way he knew how.'”

If the Bob Herberts and William Raspberries of the world had any rationality, they would be condemning this proposal as a huge step backward for blacks. Don’t hold your breath.
