From Fox News:
Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.
Alan’s colleagues at Fox News, as well as many others, have taken to Twitter to express their condolences.
Whoa. Alan Colmes died. We sparred a bunch, but decent guy. RIP.

Just heard of death of Alan Colmes; the kind of liberal I loved-smart, witty, and fair; never backed up, but always backed up his views. RIP

Came to mind reflecting on the passing of Alan Colmes…and the VALUE of strong debate within a team/family/nation: Proverbs 27:17
