They surely do not make them like him anymore.

A true iconoclast.

He always reminded me of the words of MLK,

“Many people fear nothing more terribly than to take a position which stands out sharply and clearly from the prevailing opinion.

The tendency of most is to adopt a view that is so ambiguous that it will include everything and so popular that it will include everybody.

Not a few men who cherish lofty and noble ideals hide them under a bushel for fear of being called different.”

Three examples of his firepower;
