Fossil, Semper Fi, Always Faithful! The difference between you and me is that I do honor the truth, not the newspapers and not hearsay. Tucker was arrogant, no doubt about it but he was not a little man. The little man was the one who dishonored his memory in such a disgraceful manner. I would not defend a man who accuses the dead of being a liar based on a newspaper account written by Ed Bania. Politics on this island have made apparent liars out of every politician. Maybe some are, maybe some aren't but Tucker didn't mix words, anyone that really knew him knows that he always spoke the truth.
He just didn't defend himself because it didn't matter to him what people thought. He did what he thought was right and lived with the consequences. He was a brave man with many friends who loved him. So stop justifying his detractors because they are cowards who would speak ill of the dead, especially a man who did so much for so many. You can believe he was a liar, a crook or whatever you want, I can't change your mind(s) but you're wrong. People who didn't like his politics called him many things - arrogant, yes -bully, at times - liar, never. Big heart, yes. Let Tucker and this thing rest once and for all.
