Long time readers of this blog may recall my affectionate referencing of some of his ‘toons, on those rare occasions when he turns his attention to climate and environmental topics. (Here’s a 2012 classic of his, sez me, on The Fun of Ignorning Climate Change.)
Rall is leftier than I am, and much angrier at Obama, but despite our political differences he’s a reliable witness to fact, in my experience, and so I was genuinely shocked a week ago to hear that my home city paper, the LA Times, fired him from a job posting and blogging on a weekly basis for the op-ed page because he had — allegedly — lied about an arrest for jaywalking.
Fourteen years ago. Jaywalking? Rall lying to his employer? What?
The story made no sense. At last Rall has drawn it up for us.
