Just this morning, via Popehat, I learned of the passing of Joel Rosenberg.
I first got to know Joel – as much as anyone can be said to know someone via internet interaction – back in 2007. While we certainly disagreed in that instance, I knew right then that I liked the guy.
Flash forward a number of years, and lo do we learn of Joel standing up for his rights again the jack-booted thugs of the Minneapolis Police Department.
An impressive man in all senses of the word.
I’ll be picking up his books soon, as I feel some certain amount of shame for never having read them before.
