Also GU Alumnus and G Prep Graduate. RIP Tom. While I didn't love his party's politics, he did a lot of good for our state and our country as Speaker of the House. God Bless him and his family.

A great Zag alum and fromer GU debate team member. Last great speaker of the house, IMO. Pelosi, Gingrich, Hastert, Boehner are not in the same league. His passing at a moment in our history where the US House of Representatives is so dysfunctional will hopefully spark some reflections that will remind the nations what is possible with good leadership.
