PostWatch: An irregular correction to the Washington Post

Finally! Somebody noticed the existence of all-female colleges. Hootie Johnson, in fact. And because he's a bigot, he did not ask that they be dismantled.

From a New York Times interview:

What's really gotten me is that this woman calls us discriminatory. She calls us bigots. And the press and the media jump all over this. If we discriminate, do the Girl Scouts discriminate? Do the Boy Scouts discriminate? Does Spellman College discriminate? Does Smith College discriminate? Do social fraternities and sororities discriminate? Single-gender organizations are good, and part of the fabric of America. Nobody has stopped to think about that. Nothing has been written about it. But it's a fact.''

I note that the Washington Post account stops with the Girl Scout/Boy Scout comparison and leaves out the colleges. I can't tell if these interviews were done collectively or if Johnson trooped around and gave private interviews, one after the other. They're all over the place if you search the web today. And I haven't even gotten into a poll cited in the Post story, which will be released tomorrow.
