Marion Barry died this morning. He came from nothing and rose to be the most powerful local politician of his generation. In 1990 he was videotaped smoking crack with a FBI informant. Many believed and still believe he was a victim of entrapment. While many did not condone his behavior the way he was caught did not seem fair. Barry did a lot of living prior to the incident and after it and his legacy should not be defined by the worst day of his life. Share your thoughts.
