I Am Sullied – No More

Austinite author Robert Bryce wrote an article about the suicide of Col. Ted Westhusing that appeared in the April 27th issue of the Austin Chronicle as well as a few other publications. That same issue of the Chronicle included an article by a professor at UT who had contact with Westhusing while he was studying Greek. I felt ill for most of the day after reading the article and it’s remained in the back of my mind over the past month or so.

Col. Westhusing’s name resurfaced today in my Crooks and Liars feed with this post. The documents linked from that post show Westhusing reporting all sorts of corruption, incompetence and outright theft. They didn’t make me feel any better. Sorry to get heavy on you, but as we go into this premature and hyped up election cycle (what the hell are we doing having presidential candidate debates now?!?!?!), leading to the election nearly 18 months away, I think it’s important to remember things like this.
