Bring On the Hebrews "We decided, well, he was never going to belong to the Maidstone Club, anyway."--Howard Dean's mother, Andree Maitland Dean, on her son's decision to marry Judith Steinberg, a Jew, in the December 28, 2003 New York Times. (The Maidstone Club, an East Hampton country club to which Mrs. Dean belonged, refused for decades to admit blacks and Jews.)
