The news coverage about Koch has nothing to do with his actions when he was mayor. It seems to be a fan club for his destruction of civil service unions with his massive privatizing and another strange attempt to erase history and pretend that the US, especially the government, is "post racist" and has been for awhile. It seems to be big shot Democrats trying to make their party look good by covering up 12 years of facts.
The poor, middle and especially any non-white people were mistreated badly and now we are supposed to be invisible.

Les Payne always does a good job, I'm glad he's trying to show some of the truth. Thanks , Mr Payne.

There was a giant anti-Koch culture of outrage and self defense. Some of us are trying to show that . http://worldwar3illustrated.tumblr.com/tagged/koch
