I just read on Keeping Stock that Chuck Colson has died.
I read his autobiography a couple of years ago, and I think it should be required reading for all political hacks, title notwithstanding. He was in the thick of the Watergate scandal (though by his reckoning, his alleged contribution was as much due to the fevered imaginations of reporters than anything he’d done) and was the first to plead guilty to related crimes.
Certainly though, his time since has been well spent. After his time in prison, he founded prison fellowship, a ministry that works with prisoners and seeks to reform prisons.
