Next Act for Gates, Crowley

Someone give them a reality show already: The New York Post reports that black Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the white cop who arrested him are getting along like Laurel and Hardy. Gates said at the Martha's Vineyard Book Festival that "I should have been funnier in the kitchen of my house on July 16," and joked that he offered to get Crowley's kids into Harvard, "if he doesn't arrest me again." The two men are planning to catch dinner or a Red Sox game together.
