Edward Ball is the author of a new book called 'Life of a Klansman: A Family History in White Supremacy' which explores ugly, racist aspects of his own family's past. You would think this is a book which would appeal to progressive college students. At Tulane, a talk by Ball has been canceled for now, because student critics were outraged by the very idea of this event.

Decades before wild-haired Bernie Sanders, there was Louisiana Democratic Gov. Huey Long. He served as the state's 40th governor from 1928 to 1932. Long was a tyrant and dictator. A hypocrite who lectured others, but filled his pocketbook. He also ruined lives if you betrayed or didn't show loyalty to him. Even if death Long continues to haunt the family of the man who supposedly assassinated him.
