Our Newest Op Ed
- By Warner Todd Huston
On Feb 14th, Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Richard Roeper, wrote one of his columns about the fact that Chicago White Sox Manager, Ozzie Guillen, did not accompany the team on their visit to the White House.
He used this occasion not solely to write in support of the ball player, but as a vehicle to attack George W. Bush, saying in part: “…I just couldn't shake hands and smile with President Bush”.
(See Roeper’s columns here: Lay off Ozzie: Sometimes you can't pay your respects )
