I was very sorry to read about the passing of Milton Friedman this afternoon as a result of heart failure.
It's sad to see the life of such a great freedom-fighter and economist come to an end. I wish I could have had the opportunity to meet him.
Jason Talley at Bureaucrash did a very nice post on Friedman. So did the Cato Institute.
I won't try to top them.
Rest in peace.
