Marshall Fritz, RIP

My friend Marshall was that rare combination, a devout Christian and a rigorous libertarian. Heroically he led the Alliance for Separation of School and State, and previously the Advocates for Self-Government. His death on Nov. 4 at 65 is a loss to all of us who remember Jefferson's warning that the natural course of things is for government to advance and liberty to recede.

Tributes are here. Friends are endowing a lecture series in his memory, for which donations may be sent to Fritz Fund, 1071 N. Fulton, Fresno CA 93728.
