Sad to report that we have lost one of the most dynamic voices of our generation. With the exception of being an ardent atheist, he was impossible to pin down and categorize as belonging to any one political movement or ideology. He truly called them as he saw them. Without question, he truly was his own man. He burned as bright as anyone I can recall in my lifetime, and now the flame is no more. I cant say I always agreed with him, but he was one HELL of a writer! To be 1 / 1000th as good a writer as he was Here is the rest of my tribute.
