River Rising Review has a very clear summation of the whole Pigford situation. There has been too far too much imprecision and name calling in the discussions over this issue, which is one of the reasons I wasn't impelled to post on it. Rabbi Eukel does an excellent job of explaining just what it was about and why we should care. Do head on over to his blog and give it a gander.
"Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you."~ 1 Sam 12:24
