A long and productive life

This post marks the passing of Milton Friedman, who was a remarkable fellow for many reasons.

At Hit & Run, Brian Doherty wrote:

Undoubtedly the most successful and influential proponent of libertarian thought in the 20th century, Milton Friedman, died [...] at age 94. His successes as both a technical economist and libertarian polemicist are enormous. We can thank him, in large part, for happy events from the elimination of the draft to the conquest of inflation. Just a quick note now--his impact was staggering, and there could never be enough words said in praise of him.

Update, 11/19: I've fallen behind in my blog-reading this week so I just found out that Andrew Roth has posted a great collection of links to articles and comments about Mr. Friedman at the Club For Growth blog. Start at the top (Tom Sowell Remembers Friedman - November 18th) and keep scrolling.
