The following was remembered by Loud Mime:

American Journalism and the Constitution

Tony Snow

December 2001 Imprimis

Tony Snow was born in Kentucky and raised in Cincinnati. He received his bachelor's degree in philosophy from Davidson College in 1977, and went on to study philosophy and economics at the University of Chicago. He began his journalism career in 1979 as an editorial writer for the North Carolina Greensboro Record, later becoming an editorial writer at The Virginian Pilot in Norfolk, Virginia, editorial page director of The Daily Press in Newport News, deputy editorial page editor of The Detroit News, and editorial page director of The Washington Times. In 1991, he took a sabbatical form journalism to work as President Bush's speechwriter and deputy assistant for media affairs, later becoming a nationally syndicated columnist with The Detroit News and USA Today. He was named host of Fox News Sunday in April 1996, and serves also as political analyst for FOX News Channel. Mr. Snow and his wife Jill have three children and live in Virginia. Send this article to a friend

The following is adapted from Mr. Snow's speech at a Hillsdale College seminar on October 15, 2001, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

All Americans have a deep interest in maintaining the Constitution. This might seem especially true of journalists, who owe their livelihoods to the founding document that frames our freedoms. Yet for some reason, American journalists in recent decades have assailed that document with startling vigor - and have seemed blissfully ignorant of their treachery. Fortunately, the Constitution itself supplies a cure for this malady...

Tony was my favorite journalist and commentator. As press secretary to President Bush, he made us proud. We truly lost a great Patriot, Father, Speaker, and man when Tony left us to be with God.

Thanks for posting this, SL.

From the Snowman's article in Christianity today, July 20, 2008:

...What is man that Thou art mindful of him? We don't know much, but we know this: No matter where we are, no matter what we do, no matter how bleak or frightening our prospects, each and every one of us, each and every day, lies in the same safe and impregnable place—in the hollow of God's hand.

My prayers for the Snow family on this day.

Me too. Whenever a big story breaks - and these days it's a constant stream -- I wish Tony were on the air, on the radio, anything to smooth out the facts and calm the hysteria.

God bless Jill and his family.

God Bless Tony and his family. He was a rare gift to us and his passing was all too soon. He is sorely missed, even more so in these times.

Thank you Tony and Happy Birthday.

The first time I paid any attention to Tony Snow was when he had the Sunday morning show. I always watched, because he was truly fair and balanced. I miss his great personality, and he makes Gibbs look like the shmuck that he is.

...There is something to be aware of, when persons that we respect, pass away, and we're left with mediocre, fevered egos, still thriving and prospering on the Earth, we will see them again, in a better place. God help us to get there, to be among the departed...

Thank you for posting this thread, saveliberty! I am so glad to be reminded that today is Tony's birthday---I will pray for his dear family again--surely they will be missing him even more today. What a loss they have experienced!

Actually, our country has experienced an incredible loss. I still miss him and think of him often. It would be such a comfort to hear his opinions on the happenings of the day and suggestions on how to keep a positive attitude and move forward!

Many blessings on his sweet family today as they remember their great husband, father, son, brother.
