      There may be people who are black and people who are white, both of them have a broad range of things, a broad range of positions. We didn't actually start going out until the coincidence that we'd both gone to Washington to practice law. Had I challenged that culture more emphatically, I would probably not have become editor in the first place. How did you get somebody to buy off on this? For he does believe — somewhat — in the value of a unified front of solidarity for black America to achieve political progress. LAMB: How old are the kids?

      The second part of my concern was about the rhetoric of our dialogue that too often now in the increasingly raucous battle about what's the correct route toward racial justice or racial equity in America, people are talking past each other, yelling at each other, directing invective, calling names. I should explain that although the title may suggest the book is just about affirmative action, most of the book is not. He defends the right of conservatives again, Carter quarrels with such a label like Thomas Sowell to participate in the national debate on this issue. LAMB: In which court was it? In high school to some extent, too, although grades became more important to me then.

      I don't care about the leg up that I had. That's what I'm trying to promote in the second part of the book. LAMB: Where do you write? It didn't matter.

LAMB: When did you get your interest in history? I think one of the reasons they couldn't stand me is because I was something of an intellectual show-off, but, again, not in the sense of someone who was displaying any kind of deep and profound intellect.

That's all. They loved to find what would get under their law clerk's skin to upset them and embarrass them and make them blush -- not at all in a painful or mean-spirited way, because it was fun and it lightened the atmosphere in the chambers. LAMB: Is your wife a lawyer? My wife is a moderating influence on me and on the children also, so I think that rather than being quite perhaps as smart-alecky as maybe I was, that theirs will be a little bit more measured intellect even when they're very young.

We got a Britannica when I was about 8 years old, and I would sit down and simply read it. LAMB: Do students have a choice on who teaches them? They love challenging us, arguing with us, but always in a respectful way.
