There are several books that have been written about the incidents involving Whitey. Some are good. Some not so. I’ll be commenting on them as we move along so that the record is kept straight. I’ll try to do that on Sundays.
I’ve mentioned Billy’s book White the Music Lasts. It was written at the time of the height of his power and influence, just as he was moving from being president of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Senate to president of the University of Massachusetts. Billy, the Classic’s scholar, must have forgotten it is a dangerous hill from which to write about oneself.
