Blu wrote me to suggest that I mention the passing of Thomas Friedman, which I have now done.

Correction: Make that Milton. Told you econ was not my subject.

2 Were that it was Thomas vice Milton. If William F. Buckley is the godfather of modern american conservatism, Milton Friedman is the godfather of conservative economic thought in the last half of the 20th Century. God bless the old boy, and all the others of the Chicago school.

3 I second that sentiment, Casca. Well said. Thanks Annie. Milton Friedman will be studied and discussed long after his death - truly a great visionary and lover of freedom.

4 Friedman believed in Freedom. In his eloquent writings I developed my own Ideas of the morality of freedom. Alas, too many people reject it. It is the best way ever shown to increase human happiness, and economic growth. But in order to embrace freedom, you must give up two things which are so dear to most people. 1) evading personal responsibility, and 2) imposing your (collective) will upon others. Even many of the conservatives who are right now praising Dr. Friedman do not believe in what he taught.
