Working closely with politicians for a while (and living in a political family) you soon realize that the things the media and other people say about you have a much bigger impact on your family than on you. It's hard to hear relentless criticism but it's much worse to see what it does to your spouse or your kids.
That's why Bill Buckner is such a class act.
I'm not going to go into the history here other than saying he's had to deal with a lot more than many politicians. And he deserved a day like yesterday.
