A long-term reader and commenter has notified me that Pat Lang has died. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
Pat was an acquaintance. I found him to be a courteous and delightful gentleman. He was a career soldier, stationed for a considerable part of his career in the Middle East, the first individual to teach Arabic at West Point, and a blogger. The obit on his blog is here. His blog will continue.
Pat was a paleocon. There are fewer and fewer of those left. As such he wasn’t very happy about Trump or what was happening in the Republican Party.
