Your piece on Jack Webb moved me to tears. I grew up watching Dragnet and when I joined the Army in 1965 I had a drill sergeant in basic training who was uncannily like Jack Webb’s “D.I.” Between two tours in Vietnam, college in the 70’s, and just living to my present age of 56, I have learned one big truth: Jack was right: the world really is made up of black and white or good and evil. There are good guys and there are bad guys and everything else is unimportant.p>Thanks! br> — T.L. Jeffrey /p>
