I wonder if college graduate readers get a kick out of stories about fellow graduates who make good.
I went to the second most liberal college in Ohio–Oberlin College. Only Antioch was more radical.
That didn’t stop those on the conservative side of the political spectrum from having the largest political organization–the Young Republicans. (Those on the liberal side of the spectrum split into many different organizations, e.g., Student Peace Union, NAACP).
Now I read in the Chicago Tribune that a movie will be made about the very courageous Downstate Judge who was assigned to a Cook County court room.
His name is Terry (Terrence) Hake and he graduated from Oberlin about ten years after I did.
The Tribune reports,
the announcement this week that “Crook County,” directed by the Oscar-winning Adam McKay of “The Big Short” fame, has finally been green lit.
This guy is a hero for those interested in honest government.
As the Tribune summarizes,
the early 1980s probe that saw 15 Cook County judges convicted and a total of 92 public officials indicted.
