Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, has died at 68 years of age.
He was a towering figure in the journalistic community and equally so in conservative circles. Perhaps the only person who could hang with Mr. Krauthammer in a conversation regarding politics, policy or baseball–which was most important to him–is George Will.
I remember seeing Charles Krauthammer as I was preparing to board a plane in D.C. The famed commentator sped by as he quickly departed from his flight into America’s political capital. And even though there was no opportunity for a personal introduction or moment to thank him for his reasoned yet pointed perspectives, just seeing him in-person was special and memorable.
RIP Charles Krauthammer.
It’s Friday night. People are out. Candles are lit. Magic is in the air, but will Houdini show up and put on a show for the ages or will it be the neighborhood rookie attempting a performance far beyond his skill-set?
Either way, there’s only one man who can tell this story as it happens without getting the least bit nervy.
In the play-by-play sense, he’s a player in his own right.
Talk about pulling out a Diego Forlán in stoppage time.
