If anyone has watched the news today, I’m sure they have seen the sad news that Charles Durning passed away yesterday. When I think of Durning, I only think of one character that he made famous.
It’s particularly relevant to share that famous character on this blog since I think we all need to be reminded that this isn’t a terrible exaggeration of how politicians really work. Well, the booty shaking might be an exaggeration, but not much more. :)
Durning should also be recognized for his service in World War II during the D-Day invasion. He was the recipient of a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.
