Charles Murray & the Washington Post

Today's Washington Post features an op-ed by Charles Murray:

Over the next few decades, advances in evolutionary psychology are going to be conjoined with advances in genetic understanding, and I predict that they will lead to a scientific consensus that goes something like this: There are genetic reasons why boys who grow up in neighborhoods without married fathers tend to reach adolescence unsocialized to norms of behavior that they will need to stay out of prison and hold jobs.

It isn't surprising that Charles Murray is quite popular among the VDARE crowd. But why does Fred Hiatt like him enough to give him 1,600 words in the Washington Post?
