My guest on “High Noon” today will be Harry Stein, a first-rate writer and novelist from Hastings-on-Hudson who is fearless when it comes to his observations on American culture.
A self-described reformed hippie, Stein has used his sharp pen to poke the ribs of liberals—particularly those of the limousine-riding and eggheaded variety. As a contributing editor for the online City Journal, Stein recently took aim at President Obama and Harvard’s Henry Louis Gates for perpetuating the “discredited and deeply damaging view” that America is “fundamentally racist.”
He was of course referring to the confrontation last weekend between Gates and a white Cambridge cop at Gates’s home. Stein’s piece suggests that Gates’s behavior shows that he is a “race-baiter.”
This will surely stir some controversy.
