Milton Friedman died last night aged 94. I was surprised by how sad I was to read that he had passed away. He is the ultimate libertarian hero and just an all around good guy. Stephen Pollard tells the story of how he became Friedmans pen pal, Jane Galt and Arnold Kling also have nice things to say about him.
He is a hate figure to many. Here's what someone at the Guardian thinks of him.
