Jerry Falwell has died according to AP. regardless of your religious background or political views, he was a force that gave voice to what had been a silent group. He made it ok to talk about conservative views and to put moral beliefs into practice. long ago, when i had a momentary laps of sense, i had considered attending liberty university for a law degree. the lapse of sense, btw, had to do with the law degree, not the school :-). there was no other place at the time where a conservative could get an education in something other than ACLU law.
anyway....i thought it was a death worth noting.
