An honest appraisal

Posted in Politics at 6:20 pm by Nova Newcomer

Freelance journalist Alastair Harper delivers a biting commentary on the death of Presidents. As if he were speaking for me, he explains the frustration I have with modern-day obituaries for our former commanders-in-chief. Presidents are not Kings. This is what the Founders tried desperately to avoid, I guess by failing to understand the quirks of human beings. We love to make kings of even the commonest criminal or hapless, aging icon.
