Thanks for the reminder of who this guy really was... and obviously still is.

As a Vietnam veteran I scratched this maligned individual from my consciousness and sympathy many years ago.

For the past week I have spent much of my day in a hospital room with a very sick relative. The only information available was from CNN ( I rarely use TV for information or entertainment). I saw the award ceremony but in the usual TV style the part you have exposed was left out. No commentary either. I had forgotten about the uselessness of TV as an information source.

Thanks for your nice article. Keep it up.
