I Call "Bullshit" on the New York Times

For this headline:
Thomas’s Wife Reaches Out to Anita Hill
Virginia Thomas, the teabagging wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, as well as an allegedly notorious funneler of secret campaign cash, called Professor Hill, all right. But the voice mail can hardly be categorized as "reaching out":
Andrew Gully, senior vice president of the Brandeis University communications office, confirmed that Ms. Hill had received the message and that she had turned it over to the campus department of public safety. That office, in turn, passed it on to the F.B.I.
That's got to be some kind of really polite "reaching out" when the cops become involved. Which leads me to suspect that the "reaching out" could also be termed "a threat".

UPDATE: Of course, they've changed the headline. But besides that, nineteen years after the hearings, his wife calls Prof. Hill out of the blue and demands that she apologize? Well, that's not going to happen. One wonders why the Thomases can't get over it.
Asked yesterday why she thinks the Thomases are still reliving her testimony, Hill said, "I don’t want to speculate about what is going on in their lives."
Professional help may be in order.

Maybe Ginny is finally going to put poor dumb Clarence to sleep and wanted the drama of Professor Hill's recantation for the funeral?
