Today Is Mark Kilmer’s Birthday. This Open Thread is For Him.

    On February 5, 2009, we lost our dear friend Mark Kilmer. While he is gone, he is not forgotten. We miss him. Were he here today, his birthday, he would no doubt at all put this in an open thread. And so we do.

    Ode to Mark Kilmer

    Mark was my cousin.   We were almost exactly one year apart, both ‘scorpios’.   We grew up just a half an hour a part in the same county.    We we both the first born and our mothers were sisters, twin sisters many people had assumed because they were so much alike.   We were basically the same size even, which is to say, | Read More »

    If Mark Kilmer Were Here, Mark Seibel Would Have A Lot To Answer For Regarding Blackwater

    Today we need to remember the greatest of Mark Kilmer. Back on February 20, 2007, Mark wrote a post entitled “A Baghdad fairy tale from McClatchey?” In the post, Mark pointed out a variety of anonymous bloggers used by McClatchy to smear the Iraq War and George W. Bush. It has been an ongoing thing with McClatchy. That particular news service has provided some of | Read More »

    Phase III trial for Sutent halted

    Earlier this year, Redstate lost Mark Kilmer to cancer.  Our community is not alone–cancer touches almost all of us either directly or through one that we love.  And while treatments have certainly been progressing, the battle seems an uphill one. Today, however, there is some good news. “Big Pharm” poster child Pfizer announced it is halting the phase three trial of its new pancreatic drug | Read More »

    Honoring Mark Kilmer

    After the sad news of Mark Kilmer’s untimely passing reached Redstate on Thursday, we started to think of how we as a community would honor his memory. Two ideas were the American Cancer Society and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. After some deliberation and consultation with Mark’s widow, we decided to celebrate how Mark lived and solicit donations to the Reagan Foundation. We know times | Read More »

    My own thoughts about Mark Kilmer.

    I will not be able to match the words written by Pejman or Erick – and I don’t even want to try, really: I am very comfortable with having them speak for me in this matter.  But I do wish to add one thing.  When I heard of the circumstances of Mark’s passing from this life, I was reminded of what VP Thomas Marshall said | Read More »

    In Memoriam: Mark Kilmer

    Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think’st, thou dost overthrow, Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee, Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow, And soonest our best men with thee doe goe, Rest of their | Read More »

    Remembering Mark

    ark was an astute observer of politics and, as I learned through our interviews, of politicians. He was a talented writer and a dedicated advocate of conservative values. I want to join all the contributors and readers of RedState in sharing my condolences and prayers with his family.

    Mark Kilmer Headed Home

    It was about four years ago that the Directors of RedState were lamenting the loss of a column at National Review Online that chronicled the weekly exploits of the politicos on the Sunday talk shows. We wanted someone to write a weekly round up — 1 man and 5 shows. We turned to my friend Mark Kilmer. As the internet goes, Mark and I have | Read More »
