Back in the day, when Jack Germond was a member of TV's "The McLaughlin Group," I fondly referred to him as Big Daddy.
There is no doubt that Mr. Germond could detect the smell of mendacity in the air. Indeed, this legend in his own time beat to the tune of his own drummer and was driven by a passion to write the unadulterated truth.
In the final analysis, it mattered not what Mr. Germond looked like. What mattered, is what he said, and the late Baltimore Sun political columnist told as it was.
