re: Breitbart

Oh dear, what a loss. I didn’t know him well. We e-mailed and talked on the phone occasionally and met a couple of times. He came on the NR cruise in 2010 and caused the usual fireworks during the sessions on board the ship. He was great fun. What I’ll remember most, however, was his family: He brought them all, his wife and four little kids. The guy was a family man. If you knew Andrew only by his public profile as a professional provocateur, it may be hard to imagine. But it’s true. Say a prayer for those he leaves behind.
