November 7, 1992
The performance of any public officeholder is subject to review and criticism, but it seems the charges made by a Catholic archbishop relative to the recent murder of five American nuns is way off base.

SATURDAY COLUMN
November 7, 1992
George Bush has been a good president who reflected credit on the office and the nation he has represented. When the time comes for Bill Clinton to step aside, it is hoped he will be able to leave the Oval Office with the same degree of class and respect that Bush enjoys. Bush does not have the charm or eloquence of Ronald Reagan, the homespun folksiness of a Jimmy Carter or the political savvy of Richard Nixon. He is, however, a decent, wholesome, honest individual who probably did as well as he was capable of doing in what must be one of the most demanding, if not THE most demanding, jobs in the world.
