COORS DIES….Joseph Coors, ?ber-conservative and founder of the Heritage Foundation, has died at age 85. According to his brother:

“He was very principled and dedicated. But we got along a lot better if we didn’t talk politics,” Bill Coors said.

“He was conservative as they come. I mean he was a little bit right of Attila the Hun.”

His legacy, unfortunately, will be with us for a long time to come.
