White men can't jump proven wrong

“6 white firefighters to get $3.5 million,” whispers headline in Chi Trib Metro page today, 12/17/05.  It’s an award decision about whites who said they’d been treated unfairly by affirmative action policies in Chicago FD.  City is to pay.  Big story, could be screaming head in Sun-Times, p-1 stuff in Trib.  But S-T doesn’t even have it.  We should be thankful for even small favors.
