Amazing …

… Was Thomas Jefferson on the Duke Lacrosse Team? - Taki's Magazine - Taki's Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

In response to DNA proof that only one of Hemings’ children was related to any Jefferson male — and her firstborn son was definitely NOT fathered by any Jefferson — the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the Monticello Association and the National Genealogical Society promptly announced their official positions: Thomas Jefferson fathered all six of Hemings’ children! Guided tours of Monticello today include the provably false information that Jefferson fathered all of Hemings’ children.
How intellectually rigorous of them.
