I remember Joe Cannon from the days in the early 1980's when I was on his
policy staff at the US EPA. His efforts on ridding America of secondhand smoke
cannot be underestimated, and make him a true American Hero.
This article sounds more like a funeral oration or a hagiography. Mr. Cannon
and DN readers would have been better served, I think, by a more objective, less
I personally like Joe, but I am concerned about his admiration for Ayn Rand.
Her writings have had, in my estimation, a negative effect on LDS members.
Sorry to see you leave DN in the meaningful way in which you have lead these
past few years. Best wishes to you and your family. Unfortunately DN is already
showing it's trend to the PC agenda. Too Bad!
All the best to you in your new life, Mr. Cannon.
