Deviating into Sense

February 1977
National Review;2/4/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p136
The article comments on the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of violations of the Fourteenth Amendment in Arlington Heights in Illinois. The Chicago suburb of Arlington Heights did not act in contravention of the U.S. Constitution when it refused to alter its zoning laws to permit the construction of a racially integrated housing development. This case is certain to have a powerful effect upon anti-discrimination suits brought not only in the area of housing but in all the innumerable spheres in which the egalitarian thrust collides with concrete human reality.
