Jim Morin draws cartoons for the Miami Herald and took home a Pulitzer in '96.
I haven't written much about Gonzalez flap. What can I say. The best argument for telling the truth is that at least you can keep track of the stories your telling. But, I believe that like so many problems we're having now, this has been coming on for decades. Best to lance the boil now, before it gets even worse.
There was a guest column in the Oregonian Sunday by Jacob Tanzer, a former Justice on the Oregon Supreme Court. I didn't read the column but it was referenced in an editorial in the same paper today. Tanzer recalled his days as a trial attorney during the Kennedy administration. Tanzer was called on to investigate a union leader who was a Democratic supporter and probably was instrumental in getting JFK elected. He pursued the case, the union boss was convicted and Tanzer received a commendation from the attorney general, Robert Kennedy.
I find myself wondering more and more what the world would be like if Bob Kennedy had taken another route out of that hotel in '68. I do wonder.
