Kentucky has a novel idea for regaining access to Medicaid: Pass a health or financial literacy course. Critics say the idea has uncomfortable historical echoes.
Critics say? I didn't know historians of the Jim Crow South were "critics." Maybe we can chalk this up to the general and endemic blurring of all distinctions between history, art criticism, philosophy, Catholic social teaching, and making angry YouTube videos. But this is not the first time somebody at the Times has weasel'd out of telling us the straight truth about what Republicans are up to in states where they rule. Mr. Sulzberger, Black History Month is nigh, and you need to be educated.
