He was a true intellectual conservative. His voice will be greatly missed in the greater discource, and the disonance will be greater.

I'm gonna steer far clear of politics, and just re-link something about Charles Krauthammer the man, which seems to reflect very nicely on his character. RIP.

RIP. A stand-up guy in every definition. I admire him more for his accomplishments than his views; not to say that I dismissed his views outright. We all would do well to follow this great man's footsteps. The world is a bit poorer, and political discourse benefited from his views.

One for my hommie Krauthammer!

^^THIS. A class-act. Forget about politics, this man was a class act, a role model that our youth is too foolish to see what really matters in life. Newsflash: it is not about having the latest IPhone.

One of the stories I loved about this man was how he would often leave the studios and race over to watch a ball game with George Will. They were/are avid baseball fans, it would have been cool to watch a game with these two, just talking baseball...

On the politics side of things, I didn't always agree with him, but he almost always made me think. A great American and conservative thinker, he will be missed.
