SANDY Grady is a columnist for the wildly liberal Philadelphia Daily News. As such, he qualifies for reprinting in the similarly radical Evening Sun. Because Grady is fairly crafty -- a sort of Mary McGooGoo with a mallet -- and because I believe in keeping an eye on the enemy, I read his July 14 column on the Democratic National Convention.
At first I thought the Age of Miracles had arrived, that this heavy-handed, hard-lefty had actually written something with which I could agree:
"It's the Valium-like peace inside the Garden that makes you wonder what happened to the old snarling, biting Democrats . . . This seamless, antiseptic love-in is exactly what Governor Clinton and party chairman Ron Brown wanted . . . You may call the federal pen at San Quentin "unified," too, but it's not exactly democratic with a lower-case "d."
