MEMBER DIARY

RIP Conservative Leader Paul Weyrich

Paul was 66 when he passed this morning. His work is well-known in conservative circles as he was the first president of the Heritage Foundation.

Mr. Weyrich is credited with being at the forefront of conservative thinkers that helped create and guide the Reagan revolution.

Weyrich had suffered a spinal cord injury in 1996 and had been dealing with complications from that injury ever since. 66 is much too young, still. His expertise and intelligence will be missed.
