This is what I think is a perfect example of what Il Principe refers to as "Weapons of mass distraction." Things like this are the real WMDs while we're getting jerked around on health care and the war in Afghanistan.
What's your opinion? Is the situation between Professor Gates and the cop who arrested him really as important as all this attention it's gotten? Why do you think they do that? Whose fault is it? The Prince says get the news from AP or Reuters, is that the answer?
