Crosscut's Homage to Maleng

O. Casey Corr writes:

If any good comes from recent headlines about U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and the firings of John McKay and other U.S. attorneys, one benefit here is a deeper appreciation for Norm Maleng, the elected King County prosecutor who died yesterday.

Gonzales' displays of bad memory, indecision, weakness, misjudgment about subordinates, and tin ear for the distinctions between prosecutorial policy and improper politics stand in contrast to the legacy of integrity and competence left by Maleng.
A man of integrity and decency who saw the best in people, Crosscut, May 25, 2007.
