Harry Browne is dead

I was browsing through some libertarian-oriented websites today and I was shocked to read that Harry Browne had died on 1st March.

I was a keen fan of Harry Browne's radio show, which lasted prior to his confinement to a wheelchair. He had greatly inspired me as a libertarian and really was the old daddy of the global (and not just American) libertarian movement. He was also a fine writer and speaker. I've purchased a copy of "The Great Libertarian Offer" and I've been meaning to buy "How I Found Freedom In an Unfree World".

I'm sure he'll be missed greatly. RIP Harry Browne.
