A few years back, I had the privilege of writing with Lou
Guzzo, Mark Gardner, and occasionally Dr. Matt Manweller on a blog called Wacky
Nation. Already in his late 80’s,
Guzzo still had a mind like a steal trap and the ability to turn a phrase like
few others. We agreed on
very little, though all four of us were conservatives of one sort or
another. But one thing he and I
agreed upon was the need for passionate, outspoken citizenship.
Today’s world is full of people willing to share their
opinions with anyone who’ll listen.
But there’s a dearth of people who can pull together a compelling
argument or sort through piles of information to find the grains of truth or
clarity. Lou Guzzo was one such
will be sorely missed.
