I didn’t think much of George HW Bush when he was President, but it’s amazing to reevaluate him in terms of the latest model. I can’t deny my respect for his service to our country, even if he ran an organization that arguably did more harm than good worldwide. As with all people, he was a complicated, flawed, honorable human being, and I’d like to believe he did more good than harm in his life. Godspeed, sir.
