I'm Rich Ford of Stanford Law School. As Dahlia mentioned, my wife just gave birth to our second child (thanks Dahlia for the well wishes) so I've not been on top of blogging (or anything else)--sorry this is a bit on the late side. I write about civil rights, race relations and local government law and I've just recently published a book entitled The Race Card which was excerpted in Slate back in January. I'm looking forward to the conversation.
