    Public officials sometimes have a non-obvious agenda behind
    their actions. Sometimes the true agenda is even the opposite of
    what an action seems to mean. That's what I think...but it's
    hard to prove unless the instigators eventually spill the whole

    era mentions just the kind of action I have in mind. I

    In this case the instigator eventually admitted -- toward the end of
    his life -- that he had had a "larger calculated strategy" in staying
    his own 1961 ruling integrating the University of Georgia.

    For Is it likely to have made any difference
    if the U. of Georgia _had_ appealed before the plaintiffs apparently
    beat them to the punch and took their case to the Court of Appeals?

    For Aren't liberals are smarter than
    conservatives when it comes to using strategems like this?
