It's always been a source of amusement to me how folks operate on "info"-bytes: e.g., "Sally Hemmings" elicits "oh that slave that Thomas Jefferson screwed?"

Often I wonder how much of what we think we know, is actually true...

Bump!

Maxwell -- I agree, the libbie media does it's darnedest to create these buzz words to create automatic reactions in hopes they'll pass for 'knowledge.' Thank goodness for conservate writers.

Yes, good point. The evidence is that it's a Jefferson, but which one? I'm sure in the future DNA science might be able to tell, but not now. The evidence points to the brother of Jefferson. The article states that Sally Hemmings was the 1/2 sister of Jefferson's wife Martha. Interesting fact unbeknownst to me.

Oh, but the liberals want so badly for it to be true.
