MORE FOOLISHNESS FROM TURNER AND KAMBON. An alert reader urged me to check out Margery Eagan's April 8 column in the Boston Herald. The subject: national-security adviser Condoleezza Rice. The speakers: City Councilor Chuck Turner and local activist Sadiki Kambon.

Turner was quoted as saying that Rice isn't concerned "about the plight of the majority" of African-Americans. Okay, she's a foreign-policy wonk, not a domestic-policy analyst. But then Turner added that Rice is a "tool to white leaders.... It's similar in my mind to a Jewish person working for Hitler in the 1930s." Say what?

Kambon, naturally, was even more outrageous, calling her "Condoleezza White Rice" and "The Negro Security Adviser."
