Readers, I heart Bob Herbert.
He gets no love. As an op-ed columnist at the Times, I think he may be one of the least influential, least linked, and least re-quoted of the columnists, and I think that's a shame, because he says some really good things, all grounded on a belief of basic human decency and its necessity in a democratic society.
And this, in the media echo chamber, is rare.
I was reminded by this column yesterday why I heart him so hard. Feel free to click on over and nod passionately along with what he is saying while you read.
