Kudos to you, Mr. Thomas. This column showed decency, kindness, humility and intelligence.
I didn't know about your friendship with George McGovern---the man who made me politically aware and conscientious. He was truly a great man and exemplified what true "conservatism" meant in the very best sense of the word.
It speaks very well of you to write such a generous tribute. Thank you, so very much. Peace to you and yours.
