Death of Milton Friedman

The great man has left us, at the age of 94. As with other the titans who have departed this life in 2006, this blog is in mourning for him. As with Sir Alfred Sherman, "in my own secular goyische way, I will say kaddish for him".

It seems only right to include his obit from the Chicago Tribune, which leads with the story. I note from that obit that PBS is airing a biography of him in January.

Condolences to one and all.

Yes, condolences to his family, his friends and everyone who has been influenced by him.

Sometimes we say there is no justice in the world, but that he lived into a sprightly old age should be a comfort.

Indeed, I don't think that anyone can look back on his 94 years and think he was short changed on a lifespan. We also still have his wife, Rose, and son David M, a fine writer in his own right.

Thanks for the link Verity.
