Tony Snow Dies

It was with much sadness that I read this morning that Tony Snow died after a long fight with cancer. He was only 53.

Over his 30 year career, Snow was a syndicated columnist, editor, TV anchor, radio show host and musician. In 2006, Snow became the White House press secretary where he served President Bush for 17 months.

Snow had his colon removed and underwent six months of chemotherapy after he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2005. In 2007 he announced his cancer had recurred and spread to his liver, and he had a malignant growth removed from his abdominal area.

Snow joined CNN as a political commentator early this year.

The media has lost one of its true gentlemen today - so poised and well-spoken, and incredibly gifted at his craft. My prayers go out for his family and friends.
