If my memory serves me, there was a “Starman” who used to post at Powerline Blog back in the before-time. Wonder if it’s the same fella.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

If he was exceptionally smart it was him.

Honestly, it’s only the moniker niggling the memory cells. The powerlline commenters were about 20,000 strong at the apex, and a few names of commenters I haven’t heard since the mid 2000s still stick in the mind.

I do vaguely remember a Starman.  There was also a Rocketman, but he turned out to be mentally unstable.

RIP
