Dean Barnett died a year ago today. Only a couple of weeks earlier I had spent a wonderful hour talking politics with him as I and and many others had become accustomed to as part of our more enjoyable moments.
Duane and I will be playing some Dean clips throughout today’s show, and Duane is building a Dean archive at the Hughniverse. Here’s another tribute from his pals at PunditReview.
Dean and I met only a couple of times, but we were able to became fast friends because of new media. He was generous with his time and his encouragement, especially to young people and especially to the men and women in uniform. What a great American, the The Plucky, Smart Kid With The Fatal Disease.
