"we can add hubris to Bennett's growing list of moral calamities"

Hooray for the Austin American-Statesman. They knock the blocks out from under Bill Bennett.

Researchers long have pointed to socioeconomic factors as a primary cause for criminal behavior. But Bennett didn't say that aborting all poor children would reduce the crime rate, but rather aborting all black children — rich, poor or middle-income — is the way to lower the crime rate.

Bennett should apologize. Instead he blames the media for taking his comments out of context. Right.

With the heat in the kitchen rising over his statements, Bennett, who preaches much about taking personal responsibility, isn't doing that. Apparently, that advice is for others.
