Staff Pick

“In my lifetime, I have never felt more ashamed of [the] leadership in Washington. And I would hope from time to time that you have the humility and grace to be ashamed of yourself.” Those are classic words from Harry Taylor, a Charlotte commercial real estate broker who in a rare unscripted Bush moment civilly and cogently did what millions of voters have longed to do: Tell the president that his prosecution of an unpopular war abroad and assault on civil liberties at home should not be done in their names. Taylor’s calm condemnation made him an instant hero to Bush detractors everywhere — see the Web site thankyouharrytaylor.org.
