JANUARY 12, 2013

Some names are keys.  Read "DiMaggio" on a page and you thought, of course, of baseball.  Read "Rockefeller" and you thought of politics--Republican politics, the clean and honest kind.  The Washington Post reports today that may be ending.

The story is that Jay Rockfeller has decided not to run for the U.S. Senate in 2014 after almost thirty years in the place.  Wow.

The Rockfellers have been rich, big political guys for years. Vice President Uncle Withrop. Great-grandfather Nelson, a senator.  Another Uncle Nelson, vice president.  All clean.

It's clean that counts.  I grew up in Chicago.  We had families too, but some of them had names like Capone.  Clean was not the first adjective that came to mind.

So, so long Rockies and congratulations. You did it right.
