Thank you, Tom Menino, for taking the time to wade in on Elizabeth Warren’s real or imagined Native American heritage, for letting us know that we need not be concerned about it because there are more ­important issues to confront, things like crime, education, and jobs.

It sounded so adult, so mature, that I wanted to stand up and shout, “Hear, hear! Finally, a voice of sanity in the ­asylum.’’ But there’s one small problem with Menino’s point, and that problem is this: Our normally sage mayor is wrong.
