Harry Whittington has been in the news recently as the victim in a hunting accident involving Vice President Cheney, but before this event, he’d earned a reputation as a famous solo in his own right.  As this article from the Austin Statesman describes, Whittington’s successful legal battles included ensuring that the state properly spent the proceeds of bond issuances and securing humane prison conditions for the mentally retarded.  As Whittington himself described, he wasn’t a do-gooder per se, but a lawyer committed to making sure the state followed the law and to protecting people’s constitutional rights.  And his career also exemplifies just how far a solo can soar.
