from an op-ed in the Youngstown Vindicator:
James A. Traficant Jr. will go to his grave knowing that the thinking people of the Mahoning Valley have no respect for him.
His family and friends will love him, the usual hangers-on will urge him to keep fighting his enemies, real and imagined, and he may even hear a voice or two of reason.
But the words, “I respect you, Jim,” will not be spoken to him.
Not by people whose opinions matter.
wow. powerful stuff.
