R.I.P. Mr. Friedman, And God-speed

Michelle and Allah tip us off to the passing of a great man. Milton Friedman passed away at the age of 94. From The Friedman Foundation:

INDIANAPOLIS—Today, upon news of the death of Nobel Laureate economist Dr. Milton Friedman, Gordon St. Angelo, president and CEO of the Milton and Rose D. Friedman Foundation, offered the following statement:

America has lost a true visionary and advocate for human freedom. And I have lost a great friend.
Milton’s passion for freedom and liberty has influenced more lives than he ever could possibly know. His writings and ideas have transformed the minds of U.S. Presidents, world leaders, entrepreneurs and freshmen economic majors alike. The loss of his passion, incisive mind and dedication to freedom are all national treasures that we mourn for today.

Milton never chose to slow down; even at 94 he kept fighting to bring educational equality to all of America’s children. And it’s this vision, this drive for educational liberty that the Friedman Foundation will continue to bring to families throughout America.

His impact on my life over the last 33 years was significant. His impact on the world was momentous. Without a doubt, few people have done more to advance civil and economic liberties throughout the world during their lifetime than Dr. Milton Friedman.

The Nobel Prize winning economist will be greatly missed by many. He was greatly respected amongst many of his peers and associates, and was among one of the foremost, intelligent thinkers when it came to economics. But as Allah points out, not everyone is mourning the man's passing. Leave it to the Left to act childish about his death. I swear, these people impersonate their mascot--a jackass--more and more each day. Grow up already you nutters.

Publius II

UPDATE: On the day that Dr. Freidman dies, The Global Perspective observes another record day for the Dow, S & P, and Nasdaq. And it's also noted that the dead tree industry, and air-head talking heads have nothing to say about this, again. Sigh.
