Oriana Fallaci Dies

fall.jpegOne of my personal heroes is dead. What can you say about Fallaci except that she was a human being of tremendous courage? She was also an extraordinarily beautiful woman and a great writer. To say that she will be missed is a vast understatement. She was crucial to our times and leaves a void. Her death makes me cry as if I had lost a family member.

An obit by Michael Ledeen, who knew her, will appear on Pajamas later today.

UPDATE: Ledeen tribute now up.
