It is hard to find nice things to say about a man who dedicated his life to ruining other people's, but Robert Novak was a talented journalist who deserves to be remembered as one. Novak was also from the old school, and at least believed in civilized debate unlike the freak show cast of conservative talk show personalities in the modern era.
Best known for outing CIA agent Valerie Plame and doing a hit and run on an 86 year old pedestrian, most people will not have fond memories of the man. But it is a sad day for his family and friends who no doubt will remember him for his better qualities.
RIP Robert Novak.
