We Shall Not Overcome

I’ll leave it to others to dissect the implications of this Feb. 8 note from NAACP chair Julian Bond to DNC head Howard Dean. In it, Bond uses “the strongest possible terms” to urge delegate representation for Black voters in Florida and Michigan at the Democratic National Convention.Julian Bond Feb. 8 letter

Of course, I deeply respect Bond’s immense legacy and record in civil rights.

But without casting aspersions on him, shouldn’t a person who has faced as many obstacles and dilemmas as Bond be able to spell “aspersions,” “obstacles,” and “dilemma,” not to mention “Michigan”?
