Fondly Remembering Lyn Nofziger

The newspapers will retell the story of Lyn Nofziger — the famous and loyal adviser to President Ronald Reagan.  But my fondest memories of him took place at the Silver Diner in Clarendon, Va. — where we would occasionally meet for breakfast.

It was there that he mentored countless young conservatives — over bacon and eggs.  We asked him to tell us about the day Reagan was shot, about what Lee Atwater was like, and about his days as a newspaper reporter.  And he was more than generous with his time and his advice.

I honestly can’t imagine a lot of men of his stature taking that much time to mentor us.  To us, Lyn Nofziger was more than just a tough and smart politico — he was a kind and generous man.  Today, the conservative movement has lost a good friend.
