Better late than never

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., says he was all for the Senate lynching apology that passed Monday. He called lynching a "horrific practice" and "a disgraceful time in our nation's history."

He's right, and that's why he'll surely be glad to follow the lead of his fellow Alabama senator, Jeff Sessions, by signing on as a co-sponsor of the resolution. Shelby still can add his name to the list retroactively even after the resolution's passage; five senators did just that Tuesday, and there's no reason the rest can't do the same.

I'll be waiting and watching.
