Libertarianism's greatest champion passed away today, after a long and fruitful life.
He will be terribly missed. Let the celebrations of his life and legacy begin.
I'd start with Friedman's eloquent letter to William Bennett, urging him to end America's disastrous war on drugs. It went unheeded, of course. Sad for this country that the federal government has come to be stocked with more William Bennetts, and fewer Milton Friedmans.
UPDATE: The New York Times obit for Friedman is up, and it's very good.
