This comment came in regarding the 2/22 post about trying to set the record straight on McCoy Tyner’s alleged involvement with Ike and Tina Turner (see below).

Anonymous? Is that you Charles? Good to see the politicos are visiting HumBlog. 
I haven’t picked up this week’s Journal yet, and I actually have not read the story on Prop. T and the Green Party business, so I can’t exactly comment on it. 
But I can answer your question. First, I don’t exactly work for Hank, I’d describe it more as working together. And I love working with him. He’s my favorite of all the Journal editors so far. 
Heartless? Hardly. He has a heart as big as all outdoors. 
A hack? I don’t think so. My dictionary defines the word as a “a writer producing dull, unoriginal work.” I don’t find his writing dull by any means. And it’s anything but unoriginal. I’d describe him as tough, and I know some of what he writes pisses people off, but it’s honest, well researched journalism. I’m getting kind of tired of activists who take the same stance as our short-sighted president along the lines of — if you’re not with us, you’re against us (or with the terrorists). Are we supposed to be pom pom girls for whatever cause comes along?

  1. Didn’t you know that? You move to the left, you move to the right, you move down the center and fight, fight, fight!

  2. “I’m getting kind of tired of activists who take the same stance as our short-sighted president along the lines of — if you’re not with us, you’re against us”

    Agreed
