WaPo's David Broder

Too bad for his family and those who cared about him. I'm sure they'll miss him.
"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."

I'm sure you are right. Limbaugh gave his passing a brief mention and referred to him as one of the few reasonable libs who were still out there. I can't say that I agree with that. The difference with Broder (and maybe this is what Rush meant) is that he wasn't purposefully outrageous. That seems to be the strategy with today's libs, to get noticed and stay in the headlines they have to be pretty nasty. So they do. Broder was a legacy and didn't need to do that so he didn't. But he was just about as left leaning as any of them. Because if he wasn't I never saw him stand up to the hoards of leftist nutcases that dominate the media. If you don't publicly disagree with a position then you are giving it a de facto or tacit approval.
In a doomsday scenario, hippies will be among the first casualties. So not everything about doomsday will be bad.

Complications from diabetes can only mean one or more organ failures and other sundry ailments colliding...not a good way to go.

And I agree with Trap, if he would have shown more spine in denouncing the outrageousness in the MFM I would have had more respect for him.

Feel for his family though.

It's too bad we've come to a time when "reasonable" means that you spew the tenets of an utterly false and evil ideology without spittle-flecked screaming and cursing.
