Re: "Things Gov. Martin O'Malley could learn from Willie Don" April 20, 2011.
Gregory Kane lauds the late William Donald Schaefer for his refusal to engage in racial pandering, for not succumbing to political correctness, and for not being Gov. Martin O'Malley. Granted, Schaefer was an exemplary public servant having served as mayor, governor, and state comptroller; however, his legacy will be tainted by his unfortunate propensity, particularly in his later years, for uttering racist and sexist remarks. Alas, there were lessons that Willie Don failed to learn.
