Charles Krauthammer, the renowned conservative commentator, has not been seen on Fox News in ten months. Viewers knew it was for health reasons. But today, Krauthammer released a letter to bid all farewell. It seems that as he was on the verge of recovery from abdominal cancer surgery last October, the cancer returned and he may only have a few weeks to live.
In this letter, Krauthammer graciously thanked his colleagues, viewers and readers hoping that he played a small role in conversations that help guide our nation's extraordinary destiny.
Honoring Krauthammer's wit and wisdom, it is worth savoring this pearl on how to understand Washington.
Although Krauthammer does not hold religious convictions, it has been a blessing to have him be a thoughtful conservative commentator for decades after initially serving as Vice President Mondale's (D-MN) speechwriter.
