How sad. He used to be one of my heroes.

Dear Captain_Fil,

It is sad - and one of my heroes just passed.

"George McGovern lived his public life with an integrity that in these rancid political times, all of us might envy. He unfortunately is remembered most for his overwhelming defeat at the hands of Richard Nixon in the presidential election of 1972, but it is worth noting that Nixon resigned in disgrace, the only President to ever abandon his office. McGovern was a historian, undoubtedly with profound respect for the presidency; it is difficult to imagine his obstructing justice or abusing his power in the Nixon manner."

To me, integrity is important.

Regards,
John

Dear John,

It is very sad. So many good people have passed away this year.

As for Lance Armstrong, his troubles have just begun. A life with dishonor is worse than death.

Regards,
CF
