Jane is OK by Me

I've felt for a long time that born-again Jane Fonda got a bad rap. I'm glad to see that Nick Gillespie, Bill O'Reilly and have some mitigating evidence on her behalf. Jane was no genius, but in a time of lies and counter-lies, it was not surprising that someone could get a little lost. Honorable people of good-will can still be found at the extremes in any argument about Vietnam. Doesn't that tell you something?

One thing I find distressing about the Gillespie post is that O'Reilly apparently had no idea who Mr. Snopes was. People in prominent positions have a responsibility to rid themselves of bunk and hokum to the greatest possible extent. O'Reilly has a great deal of influence over a lot of people and really should be a little smarter than that. I was pleased, however, to see that he was actually willing to reverse himself.
