Welcome Don Walton readers!

We appreciate the shout-out from the Lincoln Journal Star’s own Don Walton this morning. (Don Walton: What’s the role of a newspaper? – LJS – 3/4/07) As Leavenworth Street readers know, we’re big fans of Don, and if you don’t read his column, you’re missing out on the key political news in the state.

For those of you new to Leavenworth Street, you can read our previous posts by clicking on the links at the right, or searching by keyword up on the top-left. Also, you can take a look at our “Separated at Birth” posts at the right as well, featuring various Nebraska political figures.

And in that light, we present the above SAB from today’s link:
Don Walton and the late Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, Mike Royko!

What about Don Walton and Dick Cheney? Those guys could be twins.

Cheney was very seriously considered, but his face seems rounder than Walton's. And we liked the idea of another columnist. And Walton and Royko seem to have purchased their noses from the same vendor...

In person, Don Walton tends to remind me of former Third District Congressman Bill Barrett.
