Slavery is Making a Comeback.

In the US. This is a pretty bad story about what seems to be a common practice among Africans coming to America. They are bringing their child slaves (ahem, maids) with them. This is going to be an interesting conflict, I think. Considering all the pushes we are seeing for cultural accommodations for our immigrants, not to mention the willingness of certain Supreme Court justices to examine other nations' laws to rule upon our own, I will not be surprised if this sort of arrangement is gradually accepted.

To hell with that 13th Amendment stuff. After all, the Constitution is a "living document," and the meaning of the words are dynamic, rather than static. Or maybe it's all in the penumbras. Whatever insane rationalization is used, I have a bad feeling that that is where this is headed.
