RIP.... Tony Snow... and shame on you TMZ... you highly publicize when a liberal media persons death occurs... but when it comes to a good Christian man.... you slip it in where no one actually sees it. This was a story... worth moving forward... unlike some of your other choices.

He was the only conservative pundit I had any respect for. He did it with pizzaz. Its a loss for this country. Hopefully he is in a better place.

Shame on you for shoving the story of Tony Snow to the end of the column. I send my condolences to his family. I am a 66 year old grandmother and had the biggest crush on Tony. He will be missed by everyone in my family.

he seemed like a rather nice and charming guy. he died at far too young an age, which is always a tragedy.

that said, he was complicit in the lies told to the world about Iraq, torture, outing a CIA agent, and the list goes on.

What a loss to our county. first Tim Russert, our buffalo home town icon and now we loose Tony Snow, a very decent and honorable man and journalist. What a shame, but the Man Upstairs calls some of the best before we would want to loose them. RIP and condolences to Tony's family.

Tony Snow was a class act. Period. The best. But for his bad health he could have been a great asset to the Republicans later on in life. Needless to say he never drank the Obama Koolaid.

Tony Snow was a class act. I don't think there is another one like him in Washington.
I would think that he and Tim Russert are in heaven discussing politics.
What a shame to lose two great ones. Perhaps from different political aspects, I thought they were both gentlemen and very likable personalities.
May God bless his soul and give him peace forever.
