Editorial Alert -- Rod Paige

Secretary of Education Rod Paige has an editorial excoriating the NAACP for its "corrosive rhetoric" on the Wall Street Journal. It is subscriber only, but if Opinion runs it this weekend, I'll link it (Opinion Journal runs a small selection of the prior week's editorials and op-ed pieces on weekends).

This follows-up on Pres. Bush's decision to decline to speak to the NAACP convention last weekend, which I noted here.

UPDATE: The AP reports on Paige's editorial here.

And Pres. Bush has announced that he will address the National Urban League, another civil rights group that states its purpose is "empowering African Americans to enter the economic and social mainstream."
