My heart was broken when he told his followers he'd not be back. The end was near and inevitable. To me his absence created a huge hole in my sources for critical thinking on all things political.
I didn't always agree with him but I could never fault his manner. I noticed a lot of moist eyes among his colleagues who reminisced about him yesterday after news of his death emerged.
How fitting, in a way, that it was on the first day of summer for one of his passions was baseball and the boys of summer.
There is nothing to be said about him that hasn't already been said. He was a good man, a kind man and a fair man. Who can possibly take his place? At this moment the Right, the so called Conservatives have no one.
What about the Left? Who have they ever had, really? They do have someone who is trying to have his voice heard. A Democrat who like Charles finds his party leaving him. I cannot imagine him embracing the Conservative cause; he's an academic after all. He is also an attorney of some renown and an avid Constitutionalist. I listen to him whenever he is on air - or try to. Again, I don't always agree with him but he's also honest and forthright. Just like Charles.
Who might this be? Alan Dershowitz. The Left and the Right would do well to listen to what he has to say.
Who knows, maybe FOX will add him to Special Report's panel as a contributor on a regular basis. They could do far worse.
