I had no idea who he was. I think I may have linked to a Brietbart news story on occasion - but I had no idea who or what he was or what he stood for. (I only recently found out that Drudge was a person named Matt.)
I knew who he was of course, but I was never a fan. Never liked the Monkees - they were a product, a commercial exploit, a mediocre imitation of the Beatles as they were depicted in their film, Help; the Monkees were produced for TV. I think he must have been a good man however, and was able to make a decent living.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
