Veteran political columnist Robert D. Novak, 78, died today of a brain tumor at his home in Washington DC.
Odd that the self‐described Prince of Darkness was one of the nicest persons I’ve ever known. Unlike many here in Babylon‐by‐the‐Potomac, Bob became less enamored of the Establishment the longer he was here. He believed in liberty and was a great friend of the Cato Institute.
He will be sorely missed.
