Having just worked my way through Scott Berg’s long biography of Charles Lindbergh, and being a huge fan of John Glenn since I was a boy, Bill Flanagan’s commentary (transcript) on Glenn (and Lindbergh) this morning was particularly riveting.
It started when Glenn’s daughter, a St. Paul resident, asked if Flanagan would mind saying hello to her parents.
Imagine how humble the DNA must run in the Glenn family to ask the question that way.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
