I disagree. Courtland has always spoke his mind and its the very thing that attracts me to his column. Michelle is a big girl and she can handle her critics. The comparison you make is not valid because although all little girls are looking at Michelle, her race is even more attentive and expects something greater. We (Blacks) are our own harshest critic and it comes with authenticity. We have never shied away from saying what we think especially about one of another. It's simply just the way it.
