One of our former regular commenters here has passed away


Long-time readers of this blog may recall the frequent comments submitted in the early years by Mike Carroll, who died of cancer the other day at the age of 64 (see HERE).

Mike and I never met, but we exchanged personal messages by email on several occasions. He was one of those conservatives for whom I had great respect and with whom I especially enjoyed crossing rhetorical swords.

My condolences to his family and friends.

    I remember thinking he was a smart commenter.

  2. Very sad to hear. The banter between Mike Carroll and Pat was usually thought provoking and sometimes quite humorous. I can’t remember a time when Mike Carroll ever lost his composure when discussing politics, which is quite admirable considering how strongly we all feel about key issues.

    Rest in Peace, Mike Carroll. You will be forever missed, but never forgotten.

  3. Sorry to hear this.
