Thursday letters: Pinson trial smashed stereotype

If you had asked Columbians what a “good-ol’-boy” system was, they probably would have described aging, overweight, balding, white-skinned guys with sweaty foreheads dressed in white seersucker suits and stuffing government money in their pockets (i.e., Boss Hog). After the Pinson trial, we now can say that “good-ol’-boyism” is no respecter of skin pigmentation. We sure blew up that stereotype.
