We have been friends of the Larry Cochells since the mid 1970s. We have been with Larry and his family in a wide range of activities. Never once did he ever make a statement that was racist.
He gave a presentation at our church many years ago and I purchased the tape. We have listened to that tape over and over for years with our children. They are first-class, top-notch Christian people.
My question: Why were the reporters involved so quick to seize the moment and report this as news? Reminds me of Jimmy the Greek when he makes one statement and his career was over. What are the names of those reporters and who is holding them accountable?
