RIP Joseph Sobran

When I first discovered the Internet in a big way, roundabout 1997 or 1998, I immediately began to discover political pundits who had previously been unknown to me. One of my early discoveries was former National Review editor and columnist, Joe Sobran. I devoured his every word, and spent hours catching up with his archives. His explanations of the abandonment of our Constitution that has been taking place for decades was made more clear to me than I ever dreamed possible.

I eventually stopped reading Joe Sobran's columns when I noticed that he had begun to write much more infrequently, and when he did write, it became more and more about what dastardly deeds the Jews were up to.

As long as Sobran stuck to talking about the Constitution and the wonders of individual freedom and limited government, he had few equals.

Joe Sobran died the other day, at the way-too-young age of 64. I will always be grateful to him for the political and philosophical wisdom that he offered for the taking, and I took it all in.

Instead of my usual signoff quote, I will leave you with my favorite Sobran quote:

"Politicians never accuse you of 'greed' for wanting other peoples money - only for wanting to keep your own money."
