business news in context, analysis with attitude

Charles Krauthammer, the conservative commentator, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and Pulitzer Prize winner, has passed away. He was 68.

Krauthammer’s passing was expected. About two weeks ago, he wrote a column in which he said that the cancer with which he had been doing battle had returned, and that he only had a few weeks to live. My fight is over,” he wrote.

And, he said, “I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life -- full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living.”

This from a man who at age 22 severed his spinal cord in a diving accident and spent his entire adult life as a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down, with only partial use of his arms and hands. Remarkable.
