I feel a deep sense of personal loss at the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart. I never met him, nor did I have any direct contact with him, but for several years I have been a regular reader and occasional commenter at Breitbart.com. If you don’t visit that website every day, you are missing a source of breaking news and insightful commentary that you cannot get anywhere else. Let us all carry on Andrew Breitbart’s work as best we can.

Big Government, one of the subsidiary websites at Breitbart.com, has the story:

In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

by Larry Solov

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

Untimely or timely ?

@Grumpy,
We at 1389 Blog will never forget.
@philipzhao,
I doubt that we will ever know whether any foul play was involved in Andrew Breitbart’s death. He had suffered a massive heart attack some months ago, and according to his friends and family, was at risk for another cardiac event. On the other hand, he was hated by so many people, including both leftists and jihadis, that it would not surprise me at all if his enemies chose to use his health history as a cover for foul play. And any coroner or other investigator who turns up evidence of foul play would himself be in danger. It’s anybody’s guess.

This world is a messy place. Some questions do not have answers, and some mysteries can never be solved for certain.

Whether Mr. Breitbart was loved or hated, everyone is given a time when they will be born and a time when they will die and no one can escape either. We are from Allah (God), and to Him we shall return.
