I’ve already ReTweeted this.
When Powers died, to little fanfare in June, a man named Mark Pfeifer (retired from Dow Jones) was appalled by the disproportionate amount of coverage given to Michael Jackson. He penned an e-mail about a chance encounter he had had with the humble war hero at the Philadelphia airport. The e-mail went viral as friends forwarded to friends.
Take a moment to remember Shifty Powers today.
