(Toledo News Now) -
My wife's uncle died this week.
At almost 90, he lived a long and productive life of unusually good health and a clear mind. What makes his passing noteworthy is that men like him represent so much of what made America great.
He was a successful Fulton County farmer. He accepted the vagaries of weather and the economy with a confident aplomb. His opinions were strong and plentiful, yet not extreme. Even though he never stepped foot into WTOL, he had lots of advice about how I should run it. I never heard him swear. I did hear him say once of a politician, "I'm not sure he's the right kinda fella for that job." In his world, being the right kinda fella meant something.
Because I believe that America is history's grandest and greatest social experiment, I am sure that men like my wife's uncle are still out there. The thing is we never hear about them. Now you have.
