Chuck Colson (with God's help) turned his life around after Watergate andmade a difference in the lives of tens of thousands serving behind bars. He deserves to be remembered fo rthe totality of his life, and honored at least as much as Mike Wallace was.

He was described as the "evil genius" of the Nixon administration, and spent the better part of a year in prison for a Watergate-related conviction. His proclamations following his release that he was a new man, redeemed by his religious faith, were met with more than skepticism by those angered at the abuses he had perpetrated as one of Nixon's hatchet men.

But Charles "Chuck" Colson spent the next 35 years steadfast in his efforts to evangelize to a part of society scorned just as he was. And he became known perhaps just as much for his efforts to minister to prison...
