Hey! I’m trying to act all sincere over here! No. Really!
Andy on Wellstone:
In New York today, I just heard of Senator Wellstone’s death, and that of his wife, daughter and colleagues. I disagreed with a huge amount of what he believed in, but he was one of the most sincere, passionate and genuine people in American politics today. This is terrible news for all of us who value diversity of opinion and liveliness of debate in a democratic society. May he and all who died with him rest in peace.
Yeah. In honor of the diversity of opinion that he so values, he created the von Hoffman, Raines, and Sontag awards.
Thanks for caring, Andy.
