A Hero Passes

Admiral James Stockdale.

Aside from all the great things John Hinderaker mentions in his blog, Admiral Stockdale was an alumnus from my alma mater, Monmouth College.

My alumni community has -- as has this nation -- lost a great member.

Update: Michelle Malkin has a fine tribute and a series of very nice links.

Update II: the Galesburg Register-Mail has done a fair-ish job of covering this news from the local perspective, too, Associated Press piffle notwithstanding.
