At The Risk Of Becoming A Nag

I meant to mention this wonderful reminder from David Erhenstein in one of the Comment threads:

We all loved Gregory Peck, right? We all know that he was a committed liberal, activist, Democrat, right?

But did you know that Gregory Peck was among the leaders of the successful grassroots campaign to stop Robert Bork's nomination to the Supreme Court. In fact, he lent his persona and voice to a controversial anti-Bork TV ad that was denouced by everyone from Michael Kinsley to the entire first Bush administration and the entire Republican Congressional and Senatorial caucus.

The only thing scandalous about the ad was that it was so successful.

Thanks for the reminder, David.

Go, call, email, fax.

Do it for Greg.
