    He was, during the Vietnam conflict he and other ham operators used their sets to allow for GIs to talk with their families, I think it was part of a program called MARS which is still active but no longer involved as much with providing communications with folks overseas and stateside family. No SKYPE or internet, landline calls were almost impossible to get through.

    I like to listen to the "Political Junkie" radio show on NPR every Wednesday. The introduction to the show features a bunch of famous & infamous statements, like "you won't have Nixon to kick around any more," and Howard Dean's scream. Barry Goldwater's contribution is "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice." I hear it every week and find it chilling every time.
