Herman Cain, R.I.P.

  My brother Kirby took that photo of Herman Cain when we visited the studios of WSB radio in Atlanta. Mr. Cain had just returned to the airwaves after surviving a serious battle with cancer, and I’d traveled down to interview him for The Washington Times. That was not long after I’d been smeared as […]

John Hawkins Interviews Herman Cain
