When Bill Collier and all the other young idealists joined Bob Bullock’s staff in 1975, they thought they were undertaking a grand experiment in good govern ment. But it soon turned into a nightmare. “From drinking and partying on state time, we moved on to misleading the legislature and other state officials and then on to plotting how to use the power of the office to settle Bullock’s personal grudges,” says Collier. The story ended with many of the young idealists quitting and Bullock sitting in his office under virtual siege, jabbing pins in a Haitian voodoo doll. It’s all there in the Feb. 4 issue of INQUIRY, a magazine that’s something altogether different.
