    I heard him once in person, at U of C in a lecture hall. Mesmerizing.

    Friedman, to me, symbolizes everything this country used to stand for, which has been thrown to the curb by the actions of both major parties.

    Freedom and liberty: everything Friedman stood for. We have none of that anymore.

    I was in class the other day and a student (a self-proclaimed Marxist) mentioned off hand, during a break, that he had a party on the day Friedman died last year. I wanted to spit in his face, but knew enough to not stoop down to his level. So, I did just that and told him I was going to have a party on the day he died to celebrate one less brainless Marxist around.
