Jerry Falwell’s Dead - May 15, 2007

Killed by mother nature in the normal course of events. This special occasion reminds me of the great Clarence Darrow quote: “I never wanted to see anybody die but there are a few obituary notices I have read with pleasure.”

His life for me was a great testimony to another Darrow quote: “The world is made up for the most part of morons and natural tyrants, sure of themselves, strong in their own opinions, never doubting anything.”

What a great day for humanity May 15th has become.

Oh yes and... “a date which will live in infamy” (Roosevelt) perhaps could be applied to August 11 1933, the date of his birth.
