Word has just come that Paul Weyrich, one of America's most principled conservative leaders passed away last night. He was a pioneer in the world of conservative thought and activism. For the past couple of decades he has led the Free Congress Foundation. Before that he helped launch the Heritage Foundation and served as its first President.
I have never known a person with more passion for the causes he fought. He will be missed. All of us have him and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
