I have to say this is one passing I will not mourn. I thoroughly disliked senator Jesse Helms.
A nastier fighter for the right never existed once a Helms campaign commercial showed a white fist crumbling up a job application, these words underneath: “You needed that job … but they had to give it to a minority.”
He opposed every step forward the US ever tried to make. Sorry but I don’t mourn for Jesse Helms.
