posted: 01/28/2015 1 a.m. Comment 1

Michael Dale Huckabee is just Mike to those of us who have followed and admired him through his finest hours. As when he welcomed the Little Rock Nine to Central High at long last, swinging its doors wide open--decades too late, maybe, but in time to finally correct an historic injustice.

Imagine most of your friends and family living with a chronic disease that is rarely life-threatening, but it's painful and sometimes interferes with eating, sleeping and even speaking. Researchers who discovered how to reduce the rate of this disease by 25 percent would be honored as heroes, right?
