This week we saw a white, Catholic, Republican federal juidge murdered on his way to greet a Democratic woman member of Congress who was his friend and is jewish. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year-old Mexican-American college student, who saved her, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon. Then it was all eulogized and explained by our African-American president.
