RIP, Stormin' Norman.

It was a privilege to have such a charismatic leader during GW1.

A great man. I know some folks who encountered him in a professional capacity during his time as a public speaker and he was one of the most unassuming, undemanding "talents" they had ever dealt with - a true gentleman and a super nice guy.

My wife met him in Colorado a number of years back. She said the same thing about him. Very nice man.
