goodbye, harry

I was shocked to learn today that two time LP presidential candidate, author and investment advisor Harry Browne died yesterday. Apparently he was stricken with some sort of neurological illness last summer.

Lew Rockwell has written a very respectful obituary here, and Brian Doherty remembers Harry in this post at Reason's Hit & Run.

I met him in 1996 at a nearby book store where he was doing signings of Why Government Doesn't Work. I also donated to his presidential campaign that year, a massive $250! That was the year I first started getting interested in the LP.

I voted for Harry in 1996, but by 2000 I was so disenchanted with the LP, having supported every one of their candidates for POTUS since 1988, that I cast my worthless ballot for Pat Buchanan even though I had nothing against Harry Browne. It just seemed ridiculous for him to run again. In the end, Pat's final numbers were quite pathetic.
