I think it is too bad that Wilson's passing is overshadowed by Breitbart's.

Wilson was an iconoclast in the best sense of the term. While many conservatives claim him, I think he is best described as reality based. His "broken windows" concept of urban development did more good for communities than any piece of legislation passed in the previous ten years.

You mean conservatives are not "reality based?" I think that's the very thing they are.

That's up for debate.

So, debate it.
