Jon Swift, RIP

We are saddened to report, by way of Blue Gal and Tom Watson, that faux conservative blogger and brilliant satirist Jon Swift passed away. I corresponded with him a few times, and I always found him to be a complete delight (not to mention a riot).

    He was a brilliant writer and a sly wit. I will miss reading his works.

    It is amazing how many people have been touched by his Blogging character. Everywhere I look there is or was a post on this. Still a little sad over this. 🙁
