    • Oh no, thank YOU! It’s always a pleasure to get good feedback. I often operate in a vacuum, so it’s hard to know if anything registers. I’ll be here as long as you’re here! Thanks again – Gordon

  1. Johnson lacked.. a certain courage? A degree of courage? Courage, period?

    The man and the moment met, and LBJ ramrodded through congress Civil Rights legislation long overdue, and to his immortal credit.

    And that was courageous.

    But he did not, for whatever reason, command the armed forces of the United States with the same caliber wisdom. He permitted the arrogant military fools of that generation, and their reactionary allies in congress, to buffalo him into disaster. For all the good he indisputably did, it can be fairly said that he lacked balls.
