Why include the communist from Great Barrington in this story? A slave woman goes to court and is given freedom. That is a nice story. A dis-gruntled author becomes a bitter disillusioned communist. Dig him up and send his remains to be buried next to Stalin, Lenin and Marx. Now that would be a nice story.

Regarding the comment about "conservatives who compare paying taxes to the unimaginable horror that was slavery in America", what about the Democratic Party? It was the guardian of slavery throughout the antebellum period and it was the creator of the Jim Crow laws, as well as the Indian Removal Policy. If any organization needs to apologize for slavery and segregation in the United States, it is the Democratic Party.
