Herman Cain, Fugitive Slave
by L. Neil Smith
I don't write about race very often, because it's unimportant to
me. But allow me to preface this by admitting I never liked Herman Cain. Not as a

with a nod to one of my favorite scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark, was
called "Why Did It Have To Be ... Guns?".
