No end in sight

At this point, I am not sure which is worse: the story on msnbc.com about the arrest of a Harvard professor at his home in Cambridge, arguably the victim of racial profiling, or the readers' comments that followed. On the heels of the widely publicized story earlier this month about the inner city kids in Philadelphia who were asked not to return to the swimming pool at the Valley Club, it should be obvious that the election of an African-American President does not signal an end to racism.

Swam at Nitro with David and Steve. Tom coached. The pool was set up long course.

800 swim
8 x 50 kick with fins @ :50
8 x 50 pull @ :50
3 x 200 IM @ 3:30, held 3:11, felt sluggish on these
2 x 200 IM @ 3:15, went 3:04 and 3:05
1 x 200 IM, went 2:55--possibly a workout PB
8 x 50 @ 1:00, odds fast, evens easy, averaged :36s on the fast ones, went :34 high on number 7
100 easy
