Wall to wall today was the sentencing of Ariel Castro, the monster who held three girls captive for ten or more years, serially raped them, and otherwise mistreated them.

Thomas Jefferson held many girls and boys and men and women captive, serially raped some of them, and otherwise mistreated them.

I fail to see any moral difference between the acts of Ariel Castro and the similar acts of Thomas Jefferson.

Slavery is slavery.

Hypocrisy is hypocrisy.

Sort of like the difference between abortion and the killing of an adult.
