Editor's Note

In the current Pure News USA, fellow newspaper CEO T.C. Christian, Jr. observes Father’s Day by paying tribute to his father, T.C. Christian, Sr., in a piece called “He left me his name.” The elder Christian, a butcher in the Armour meatpacking plant in East St. Louis, spoiled the son a bit with gifts like a 1959 Impala for his high school graduation, but he always stayed sober and prayed by his bedside every night. He gave good fatherly advice, like stay out of the Six Aces Pool Room, and now T.C. Jr. offers his own advice: “Don’t become disillusioned or depressed about what your father did or did not do. Love him, and, if need be, forgive him.”
–Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
