Thanks for the heads up. Well, this new account certainly widens the audience for the story (which remains shocking), doesn't it?
All beautifully said. Btw, in what is a king-sized irony seldom (if ever) remarked upon, there are several clips of Owens and articles from the 1936 event in which the great athlete expresses himself as having a great time at the Olympics and completely downplays any effort to draw a political moral from his victories. The "Owens-versus-Hitler" motif was as absent from his mind as it was from Riefenstahl's. It may have served a useful purpose, but, basically, it was our side's propaganda.
Right you are, Yellow Dog. And, Rags, the mug shot was an official portrait used by DK himself, not something concocted by scheming "libs," insecure or otherwise.
I know that as well as I know my name, Robert. It was a psychic typo in which the concept of Union University (about to be mentioned in the copy) insinuated itself too early into the name of the county. Thanks for your good eye. Fixed now, at least online. Alas, the hard copy on the streets is a done deal.
In any estimate of Capitol Hill reporters, past and present, Rick Locker has to rank at the very top. And he was the soul of hospitality every time -- and there have been many -- that I have been up there sleuthing around.
