In Memory of Andrew Breitbart



As some of you may know, the "national discussion" has lost a voice.

Andrew Breitbart was, if anything, an idea warrior and loved political combat.  You many either agree or disagree with him, but in the end, he offered what we need more of...ideas.

At the age of 43, it's hard to say death was by "natural causes"...there's nothing natural about dying so young.  But it is a heavy reminder that no one is guaranteed tomorrow.  Carpe Diem, hug your kids, enjoy life, and all that jazz.

Breitbart had a lot of admirers, on both sides of the aisle.  Here is a link to some heavy hitters who will miss his public voice.

I'll honor him by giving you a little quip that I find humorous.  He would like it because it is sure to prick the left the wrong way, and it may (delight!) even start a lively discussion.

Irony

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the Park Service, part of the Department of Interior, instructs us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
