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.
