Congressman Rangel: Ending Sadly
I am saddened by the ignominious ending to Congressman Charles Rangel's career. Stories such as this latest one on the NY Times seem like serial pre-obituaries of both the man and his career. There's enough blame to go around here starting with Mr. Rangel himself. But that's not the point. I would hope that whatever one's partisan inclination, humanity compels a twinge of sadness for the inglorious ending to the career of a Vietnam war hero, founder of the Congressional Black Caucus, and an individual who has spent almost all of his life in the service of the public.
