Thanks to Kevin Cullen for his tribute column to the late John Hume, who spent decades seeking peace in Northern Ireland (”A champion for Ireland,” Metro, Aug. 4). Cullen’s coverage over those decades filled a hole in American journalism and helped readers understand the currents through which Hume so courageously navigated.
