R.I.P. Sydney Goldberg

Sydney Goldberg, husband of the Blogosphere's premier newsblogger, Lucianne Goldberg, has passed away. I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to the Goldberg family on their loss.

She felt that this tribute to Sydney written by NRO's John Podhoretz was the most fitting for her site, and who am I to argue?


Kind, friendly, amusing, amused, thoughtful, loving, clever, dapper,
jaunty, principled, intellectually engaged, politically astute, wise.

Sid was the ultimate mensch.

I loved him, my wife loved him, our baby daughter loved him, everybody loved him, and the world is a smaller and colder and meaner place today without him.

What finer tribute could a man ask for than that he was truly loved and will be sorely missed?

All that we can know about those we have loved and lost is that they
would wish us to remember them with a more intensified realization of
their own reality. What is essential does not die but clarifies.
The highest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude.
-Thornton Wilder
