Critical Race Theory


I just recently found out about this, so pardon me while I catch up.   A few weeks ago my trainer asked if I'd ever heard of Critical Race Theory, and apparently I'm not the only yokel who thought it actually had something to do with Racial Studies in the field of Cultural Anthropology, which I dearly love.

Au courant I am not.  However, ignorance is not bliss.  I'm slowly reading the PDF on CRT posted at a website run by UCLA.  You can read the latest flap about this theory in a Slate article HERE.

Apparently, somewhere, way back in the Archives of some Conservatives' personal Backwards Machines, Obama had warmly shaken the  hand of  the founder of the theory.  Shall we all now faint?

And now for something completely different:  I would like to know if game # 617 in Free Cell is actually winnable.   Please advise?
