Tony Snow: 1955-2008; Bobby Murcer: 1946-2008 July 12, 2008Posted by Mike C. in Baseball, Media, Personal, Sports, TV.
I didn’t wake up for the day until 1:30 this afternoon and didn’t have internet for a few hours because of a branch in the way of the cable wire to the house. The problem wasn’t fixed about a half hour ago (it’s 4:48 as I post this). Then, I checked my e-mail and was told by a friend on my private Topica discussion list that Tony Snow had died of colon cancer at the age of 53. I immediately put on Fox News Channel to watch their coverage of his passing.
This is very sad news, but I could sense it was coming. Among the many things I liked about Snow was he remained highly positive and upbeat to his final moments. May God rest Tony Snow.
