In the last forty-eight hours, there’s been no shortage of tributes to Nelson Mandela, but I’m going to add another.
How strange that the yardstick of time alters our regard for a person who’s an agent of change. Less than thirty years ago, Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan regarded Nelson Mandela as a very dangerous man, a Communist and a political outlier. Today, the media (and even some Conservative GOP—gasp!!) pay their respects to him.
