DAVID LEONHARDT ON DONALD TRUMP

One of the many reasons I’m enamored with David Leonhardt is that by his own admission the native New Yorker has been rooting for Boston sports teams since well before winning championships made it de rigueur.

He was an ardent fan when times were lean and naturally exultant when the tide turned. No fair-weather forecast here. In and of itself this makes me a fan of his.

Never mind that in 1998 the Chicago Headline Club honored him with the Peter Lisagor Award for Exemplary Journalism.
