Response to MinM (Reply #6)

7. Thank you, MinM! Coleman Young called Ronald Reagan, ''PRUNEFACE.''

Which, I thought, was honestly refreshing for a sitting mayor. The original Pruneface of popular culture was a Dick Tracy villain, a businessman-cum-NAZI agent.



Something else Corporate McPravda fails to mention about the late, great Mayor: He was a pro-union activist, attorney, and Tuskegee Airman who stood up to Joe McCarthy and -- unlike Ronnie Pruneface -- would not snitch on other liberals, progressives, socialists, communists or anyone who was being free to believe in whatever they wanted to believe.
