Sad about Robert Jackman passing. I liked Dr. No.
———- Forwarded message ends ———-

I don’t know what to say, other than he’ll be missed in libertarian quarters.

I never do seem to have the right words at these moments. I don’t know if there are any “right words” for times like these.

I don’t know a lot about Robert, but I do know that “Dr. No” never flagged from his committment to principle.

I do know that he took a lot of shit for the fact that he subscribed to the conspiratorial view of history and politics. Quite a bit of that shit he received from fellow libertarians.

Unlike most I’ve come across in that field, I never once saw anything from him even close to “The Jews did it!”

His blog is located here — roberto-de-sonora.blogspot.com — but his other site — simmeringfrogs.com — has been taken down.
