I hope two good things come from his passing.
1. That there's some good media on the day when a politician showed moral courage against a war that was just plain wrong. (ahem)
2. That this will be an opportunity for us old fart lefty bloggers to come out of the woodwork and find each other. Thank you, Technorati.
[Watch this space. I'll do an edit soon to link to some old farts I find in the blogosphere. If you are a said old fart, which means you are at least old enough to remember Watergate Summer, if not earlier, please leave a comment. Thank you.]
Democracy Cell Project has a nice remembrance.
Brilliant at Breakfast is worth a read, too, as is W. David Stephenson.
