RIP Milton Friedman

Milton Friedman, the father of modern Libertarianism, has died at 94.  You can find many links and remembrances over at Instapundit, who is a natural libertarian.

Myself, although I lean farther to the right on social issues, have a strong libertarian streak that was started in the early 90s when a roommate of mine gave me a book by Friedman, Free to Choose.  Up until that point I had been fairly liberal and tended to vote Democrat.  Needless to say, he changed my thinking on economic policy.
