Roskam trip a lesson to all politicians

The Daily Herald editorial on Sunday, July 28 regarding Congressman Peter Roskam's 2011 free trip to Taiwan suggests that a line may have been crossed, i.e., that the choice to accept this very expensive gift of travel was, at least, morally questionable.

It is yet another in a very long list of reminders to politicians of the following: When you inhabit high places, it is always best not to walk close to the edge.

Donald G. Westlake
