Sad news

I am very sad to hear the news that a libertarian acquaintance of mine, Richard Garner, has died at a young age. I don’t know any more details. Richard used to write a fair number of excellent comments over at this blog’s comment threads. I used to like chatting to him at conferences and other gatherings; I remember getting a cheery invite from him to join him and others at the recent “rally against debt” in central London.

My condolences to his family and many friends. He will be missed.

    Sad news.

    I had heard it from another source, but when I tried to write a few words (explaining why Richard Garner took the position he did) the other source went nuts.

    So I will just keep it at “sad news – my condolences”.

    The sort of stuff we English say at such times.

  • Indeed. Very sad. Knew his writings better than I knew him, but both will be missed.
