It is the only good thing that comes from losing great people — the kindness of so many in remembering their greatness. Andrew McLaughlin has a very good post about Congressman Lantos’ passing.

    I understand people want to speak well of the dead, but calling the man who said that I should get down on my knees and thank God every night for the Patriot Act an advocate for civil liberties rubs me the wrong way. Let’s also not forget his support of the Iraq war.

    There is – or at least can be – at least one other good thing that can come from losing great people, and that is the opportunity for people who have other things to offer to step forward. Run, Larry, run.
