Appreciation of Andrew Breitbart, The Champion of Young Conservatives

Breitbart Instilled a Conservative Philosophy for Young Americans Long Before They Would Be Expected to Turn to the Right

I got a call early this morning. Andrew Breitbart passed away at age 43. I swore it was a hoax so I sent a text message to a mutual friend and he said “No way” and informed me that he was on the phone with him last night. I then sent another text message to someone he loves and trusts; she confirmed it was “No hoax, he’s gone.”

My editor at Yahoo asked me to write a piece on him which I am honored to do. Look for it later today. (Done-See above) In the meantime some proper parting words…

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Phillipians 4:8)

PS: I made a blog post here a short time ago thanking Andrew to which he responded to and thanked me back via Twitter. And I am glad that I had done it when I did.
