Wow, he must have been ill. His death came so quickly after his retirement from 60 Minutes. It makes me think he must have known it was coming.

R.I.P.

Kinda surprised at the lack of responses here. I always thought he was a charming curmudgeon. He'll be missed

People will generally accept facts as truth only if the facts agree with what they already believe.

“Democrats (I think to myself) are liberals who believe the people are basically good, but that they need government help to organize their lives. They believe in freedom so fervently that they think it should be compulsory. They believe that the poor and ignorant are victims of an unfair system and that their circumstances can be improved if we give them help.

Republicans (I think to myself) are conservatives who think it would be best if we faced the fact that people are no damned good. They think that if we admit that we have selfish, acquisitive natures and then”
