Tony Snow -- R.I.P.

This was a shocker to me.  I thought he was doing better.

Tony Snow, a conservative writer and commentator who cheerfully sparred with reporters in the White House briefing room during a stint as President Bush's press secretary, has died of colon cancer, Fox News reported Saturday. Snow was 53 years old.

Prayers for his family and friends.  He was a good man and did a great job everywhere he went.  I loved his interaction with reporters when he worked as White House Press Secretary.

THOMAS: We have gone for collective punishment against all of Lebanon and Palestine. And what's happening -- and that's the perception of the United States.

SNOW: Well, thank you for the Hezbollah view, but I would encourage you. . . .

THOMAS: Nobody's accepting your explanation. What is it say, to call for. . . .

Heh.  That's how I'll always remember him.  Rest in peace Sir.

2 I got to see film of Tony Snow playing flute last night. What fun! He was good at it.
Still keeping your threads warm and hoping for your comfort, my friend.
