Free To Choose

Milton Friedman died today. Instapundit has appropriate words, as well as links to several good interviews:

MILTON FRIEDMAN HAS DIED. It's hard to say that someone has been plucked untimely at the age of 94, but it feels that way. His Free to Choose won over many people to the cause of liberty -- as did his Capitalism and Freedom. So, for that matter, did his Free to Choose documentary.

I was one of his converts. I first read Free to Choose in college and even got to meet the Grand Old Man (he was old even then -- in his early seventies) at a George Mason function.

"Political freedom means the absence of coercion of a man by his fellow men"

Rest in peace (and freedom).
