Rod Dreher on Clarence Thomas's book

Rod Dreher has a glowing review of Clarence Thomas's autobiography in the Dallas Morning News today. The review begins like this:
Clarence Thomas' story is the real American Dream; Every father should read this book to his son

If Clarence Thomas were a liberal, he'd be widely regarded as an American hero.

The Supreme Court associate justice's new memoir, My Grandfather's Son , is mostly a story about fatherhood and the making of his character. It's a tale so profoundly moving, and so profoundly true to this nation's ideals, that every American father ought to read the first two chapters – and then read them aloud to his children. Here is an inheritance of wisdom, a pearl of great price passed from a semi-literate peasant through his grandson, who lifted himself with it out of the direst poverty and became one of the world's most powerful men.
