George McGovern R.I.P.

My first presidential vote was for George McGovern who passed yesterday at the age of 90.  I'm still good with that vote though some of my political thinking has changed since then.  In fact, one of the things I liked about George McGovern is that he was open to rethinking some of his opinions.  His own experience as a small business owner after he left politics altered his views on regulation and liability laws and he was willing to speak up publicly on those issues.

McGovern served his country as a bomber pilot, flying more than 20 missions in the European Theater during WWII.  He was a man of honesty and integrity.  Rest in peace.
