Another Light Went Out : Milblogger Neptunus Lex Died Yesterday

One of my friends nailed it:  "I hate, hate, hate this year."  He said that because, in the middle of the nastiest circular firing squad imaginable, the good guys are dying.  The latest casualty is Neptunus Lex -- real name Captain Carroll LeFon, USN (retired) -- who died yesterday.

Those who followed Neptunus Lex know that we've lost one of the best and brightest bloggers, a man distinguished by wit, erudition, a knowledge base that was both broad and deep, and a ferocious and funny intelligence.  Please take a minute to remember someone who made both the conservative and milblog blogospheres brighter and richer places.
