They say that a picture of a person is not necessarily a window to his soul. Dunno, this one is quite telling:
Anyhow, read the revealing article about Richard (Dickie) Silverstein here. For me there were two passages that summarize Dickie only too well:
Opening up the package, Silverstein said his reaction was, "Oh, my god. What am I going to do with all this?" Then another thought: "This would really take me into a different league as a blogger and reporter."I guess that with the advantage of hindsight, Dickie slightly changed the sequence of these two thoughts.
Now the second passage:
Haaretz, Israel's leading liberal newspaper, described Silverstein's blog as an "international poster board for reports that Israel's courts and military censor withhold from publication," but said his reports "generally contain a kernel of truth, along with a good deal of speculation and some half-truths."If I got such a character witness overview from Haaretz, my first thought would have been about location of the clothesline and soap.
But Dickie will, probably, frame and display it. A rare manner of man is our Dickie...
