Bob Herbert

I have never praised Bob Herbert of The New York Times in this forum, so I want to do so now.
Mr. Herbert, rather than following "the pack", performs a valuable and, as I see it, lonely service to readers by writing eloquently and forcefully about miscarriages of justice. Whether these are in reference to criminal prosecutions or voter fraud, he highlights cases that have "fallen off the map" in terms of media coverage, and forces us to see that our system is not without its flaws.
I salute Mr. Herbert for his public service.
