I happened to be in Chicago a few weeks ago when Earl Bush, press aide to the first Mayor Daley, passed away. Bush is best remembered for defending the English-challenged mayor with the line “Don’t print what he said. Print what he meant.”
I think of Mr. Bush and that line often whenever I hear a politician’s rhetoric clash with fact. And today is no exception. Take a look at this post on Wind Farmer’s Almanac about the twisted logic of Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly’s opposition to Cape Wind.
