I won’t miss him:
The Rev. Jerry Falwell has died, a Liberty University executive said Tuesday. He was 73.
Earlier, the executive said Falwell was hospitalized in “gravely serious” condition after being found unconscious in his office.
Ron Godwin, the executive vice president of Falwell’s Liberty University, said Falwell was found unresponsive around 10:45 a.m. and taken to Lynchburg General Hospital. Godwin said he was not sure what caused the collapse, but “he has a history of heart challenges.”
“I had breakfast with him, and he was fine at breakfast,” Godwin said. “He went to his office, I went to mine and they found him unresponsive.”
I have a number of nasty things I would like to say about this fellow and the damage I think he has done to our discourse and our politics, but now is not the time. A man is dead, let’s keep it respectable here and in the comments.
