It is with great sadness that a dear friend and colleague, Alan Stang, passed away July 19, 2009 at the young age of 80.
Alan was unique. He was fearless. For Alan Stang, truth was paramount.
Alan recognized decades ago that political correctness was one of the most idious tools of the ruling elite class. He fought it with all the ferocity of a lion. His voice stood out as a beacon for freedom and liberty through truth and knowledge. No icon was off limits for Alan. He played no favorites. In his eyes and heart, all men are created equal and no one is above the law.
Many years ago I read a book titled, The Actor: A Study in Deception. The true story of John Foster Dulles, Secretary of Statae 1953 to 1959. Little did I know that one day I would write for the same news/commentary site as that author! Alan's accomplishments were many:
"Alan Stang was one of Mike Wallace’s original writers at Channel 13 in New York. A talk show host. In Los Angeles, he went head to head nightly with Larry King, and, according to Arbitron, had almost twice as many listeners. He was a foreign correspondent. Alan wrote hundreds of feature magazine articles in national magazines and some fifteen books, for which he has won many awards, including a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for journalistic excellence.
"One of Alan's exposés stopped a criminal attempt to seize control of New Mexico, where a gang seized a court house, held a judge hostage and killed a deputy. The scheme was close to success before Stang intervened. Another Stang exposé inspired major reforms in federal labor legislation.
"His first book, It’s Very Simple: The True Story of Civil Rights, was an instant best-seller. His first novel, The Highest Virtue, set in the Russian Revolution, won smashing reviews and five stars, top rating, from the West Coast Review of Books, which gave five stars in only one per cent of its reviews. 'Alan lectured in every American state and around the world and has guested on many top shows, including CNN’s Cross Fire."
We all chuckled when reading his columns because Alan called his beloved wife the "Love Priestess." They were married 35 wonderful years. A wonderful father, husband, grand dad and American.
For me, a friend and colleague. Alan, you will be sorely missed. Rest in peace.
A private memorial will be held at their local church; services will be closed to the family. Alan's son, Jay, has informed me that, perhaps a month down the road, there will be a public memorial for his dad. If you would like to contact Jay, please use this email address for now: firstname.lastname@example.org
