The Passing of a Giant

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Some of us have time left to make amends or to wring out a few more achievements before we die, but I do not think it is too early to say Charles Krauthammer was one of the great men of my generation. He was singularly remarkable and would be in almost any generation. Charles was an early resister. So far as I know he never said a stupid thing, never an embarrassing thing, never an ignoble or undignified utterance. He had plenty of opportunities. He was a fixture on television talk shows, in books, and in the public prints. In those places all he did was become the most gifted spokesman of his time.
