Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas, “offered an olive branch” to Anita Hill by leaving her the following voicemail:

Good morning, Anita Hill, it’s Ginny Thomas.  I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. Okay have a good day.”

Whatever you think about the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas controversy, the presumptuous voice-mail is breathtakingly clueless.  Both sides have stuck to their side of the story for the last two decades and this is hardly the way to reach an amicable settlement.  But this is also a person who considers President Obama a tyrant for daring to enact his electoral platform, so logical thinking does not seem to be high on the list of priorities (or perhaps has been drowned in a surfeit of gall).
