Former Governor of Alabama, Guy Hunt passed away yesterday at the age of 75. For all that new him, it is truly a sad time. Guy was an Baptist preacher who in 1986 turned politics as usually upside down. When he spoke you knew the truth was being told and that is what ultimately got him put out of office. Speaking of character assassination, no one knew that better than Guy. He was a Republican and we didn't always agree on politics, but I always regarded him as an honest, down to earth person. He was removed from office and later exonerated but did anyone apologize, put him back in office oh no. The fabrication was so unreal, so pathetic, it makes one sick just having to think about it.
Guy showed Alabama, if not the world that an honest man could hold office, could be ethical and could do it all beholding to no one.
Guy taught me one at least one thing if not several. But the one was never ever ever believe what you hear, none of what you read in the paper and take what you see with a grain of salt unless your in the shoes of that person.
I know that Guy is in heaven and I hope the good lord has already made him Governor somewhere. You are truly missed my friend and may God be with those you left behind and may your enemies be dealt with swiftly and severely.
