Goodbye Tony

Sadness for us as a media person passes. While the press uniformly notes and appears to mourn such passings regardless of the quality of the contribution we note Mr. Snow for a reason. Tony Snow, TV and Radio commentator and former White House Press Secretary has passed from this world.

Unlike so many in the popular media, Tony provided a refreshing and independent approach to news and commentary. In short, he was good. He understood that "fairness" comes from objectivity and not from partisan position. He handled adversarial situations with aplomb and good nature.

You'll be missed Tony. Rest in Peace.
