Louis Rukeyser RIP

I very much enjoyed Wall $treet Week with Louis Rukeyser every Friday on Public Television until he was booted off. He made me money, and he made me laugh, and he possessed a rapier wit.

Rukeyser died today at 73 after a battle with cancer. Appropriately, and a little ironically, I learned of his death on NPR as I awoke this morning. Many will miss his simple and straight forward explanations for complicated financial matters; but most importantly he was a rare one on the public airwaves who had a true respect for the free market.

Michelle Malkin has a very fine tribute to him.
