Ron Smith, RIP

Baltimore’s longtime voice of libertarianism on WBAL has been stilled. He was a gentleman, a man of principle and courage, very funny in person and on the air, and—of course—extremely talented as a broadcaster. And as a writer. In his final column for the Baltimore Sun, he wrote:

“What is a mere individual to do? Live as sane and decent a life as you can, love your family and friends and understand that everybody is in this together. My work here is done.”

UPDATE: I was honored to be on one of Ron’s last shows.
