Breitbart, RIP

I noticed on my Facebook feed this morning this comment from my friend Hilary Rosen: "‎#AndrewBreitbart RIP you big crazy rabble-rousing bundle of contradictions, loathsome actions and a giant heart. You have made your mark." I don't think I can say anything more fitting.

He left his mark.

Beneath all the layers of our public life, we're sons, daughters; parents to sons and daughters: naked people at our most vulnerable, true moments. This is way, way too young to die, something I know palpably since Breitbart was only a week or so older than I am.

Others knew him better, can memorialize him better. But for myself I wish the very best to his wife and children in this moment of unbearable grief and send my condolences to all his friends, of whom there were many.
