A Climate for Cross-Burnings

May 27, 2005 - I made a brief stop at vigil in downtown Durham, site of one of the three cross-burnings that scarred our city Wednesday night (couldn't stay long, the kids were really cranky). Somehow I missed Pam Spaulding, who was also there and gives a good run-down on the vigils here.
