I’ve got a friend I haven’t met, name of Jerry McGinn. Like me, he’s a Downholder — an alumnus of UPI. He and I are on an e-mail list of about 400 other Downholders, and discussion frequently veers away from the Old Days and toward an analysis of current events.
Iraq is on a lot of our minds lately, and Jerry’s written a particularly good rant about why he’s less than comfortable about where our government is leading us, and why. It was an e-mail, written on the fly; I’ve edited the wirespeak but the rest is Jerry.,
