Prof, Cop and "Beer Summit"

Months after their ballyhooed visit to the White House, Henry Louis Gates and James Crowley met up for a second Prof-Cop "Beer Summit" in Boston.

They met the first time after a controversial incident where Officer Crowley arrested Professor Gates inside his own home, and President Obama himself stepped in to bring them together for a summit. This time the prof and cop met away from the tv cameras and politicans, at a local Boston bar named the River Gods. Supposedly they talked for a good hour, according to other patrons of the bar.

Whatever one thinks of the original incident, I think both men have handled the afftermath with class, and set a great standard for how we can resolve conflicts even when they turn ugly at first. Now we just need to get Kanye and Taylor Swift together like this.
