In addition, I can hardly wait to hear the media moderate the exchange on healthcare between these two.
Andrew was a first-goer and pioneer of new journalism, an approach to the craft that sought above all else to tell the truth and expose what is not. The work he began will continue, as his efforts have inspired a new generation to follow in his path.
You started Big Government, Big Journalism, Big Hollywood and Big Peace, Andrew, for which we are grateful, but to us we'll fondly remember your Big Heart and Big Bravery.
My prayers for your families' comfort and peace and that you found yours.
Mr. Breitbart's personal transformation from liberal to conservative inspired many to re-examine their own political worldviews. His political "conversion" story touched many. He was a strong voice for the truth of conservatism as he understood it and a fierce debater.
May his detractors and even his foes not be too s m u g or rejoice in his passing but show all due respect they'd want for their own relatives and friends. You will meet with the next w o r l d soon enough, and I h o p e you're prepared.
I go to celebrate the birth of a friend today with saddness at the loss of another. I never knew you, Andrew, but your labors were a friend to me. Thanks for all the good times.
As another, early poster has already said, we should "stop and smell the flowers" as we are, as those flowers, here but for a brief moment in this world before we enter the next. We should be doing all we can to make the most of it, not merely to please ourselves but to please others, to strive with our might to be the best humans we can, to strive daily for excellence and virtue, to seek beauty, truth, and wisdom wheresoever we may find them, and to extend love and generosity to all, as much as is in us to do.
Mr. Breitbart was a true warrior for truth and will be missed but his labors will be remembered and continued.
Condolences to his family.
I predict that, barring a major reform in the monetary policy, Paul's economic predictions (as well as his foreign policy prognostications) will likely come to pass as he's said. When people hear the news of an impending, large hurricane at their doorstep, some take the necessary precautions and seek shelter and prepare ahead of time; others refuse to leave their homes, don't take precautions and as a result sometimes find their homes wiped out or worse.
Our economic and foreign policy situation is like that hurricane, barreling down on us. The question becomes what, if any, evasive, prepatory action is our nation willing to make.
