BREAKING: Caspar Weinberger dead at 88
MOVED TO TOP (posted at 12:30 p.m. MST)
One of the great and influential figures of my youth has died. Weinberger had a strong influence on me, especially as a longtime Forbes columnist. From the AP article: "'He gave everything to his country, to public office and to his family,' Caspar Weinberger Jr. said." Absolutely. I'll write more later but I wanted to note his passing. May God rest his soul.
Forbes has info up.
(I'll say it now: USS Caspar Weinberger.)
