We Loved Snow Days

Tony Snow passed away yesterday at the age of 53. He left this earth with the same grace he showed us throughout his accomplished life.

A news anchor, messenger for Presidents, talk radio host, and talented musician who never allowed his emotion on issues force him into nasty dialog. Always measured and inspirational, Snow's political commentary was intelligent and logical.

He was an unofficial leader of the conservative movement of the mid-nineties as the first host of FOX News Sunday, years before the FOX News Channel was created. Snow quickly became a favorite for conservatives like myself.

He was the only replacement host for Rush Limbaugh, who didn't leave listeners feeling like the backup was at the golden mic.

My favorite Snow moments came every 9:55am on Sunday mornings, during his closing remarks at the end of every FNS broadcast. It was in this commentary when Tony stood above the bickering of the day, providing his audience a perspective which was both reasoned and thoughtful.

My bride isn't as politically interested as I am, but she paused and teared up when she heard the news. This was the impact of Tony Snow. He touched those beyond the political hard-core.

God Bless you Tony Snow.

Too many,..too young,...too soon.

Tony was a voice of reason in the cacophony of liberal BS. We'll all miss him!
