I very sorry to hear that. Richard's anecdotes, and general thoughts, were always interesting and enlightening. It was always a pleasure to see a post of his appear.

Pat,

My deepest condolences on the loss of your friend. One of his pieces he wrote here at SST has even greater merit today in this climate of 'fear' that has encompassed the globe.

Scared to Death: the Dominion of Fear in Politics

May he Rest In Peace.

I regret very much learning of Mr. Sale's death.

I recall his rumminative essays and observation on this forum.

His was a view point that I would not have been able to find anywhere else but here.

Every death diminishes me...

So sorry to learn about the passing of Richard. My sincere sympathies to Colonel Lang for the loss of his dear friend as well as to his family. Always looked forward to read his posts even the reruns of some posts ( his experiences in Iran were very informative).
May he Rest in Peace.

All on SST
I have been a long-time reader and occasional commenter. I send my condolences to all here who knew him personally. I valued his comments and reflections on the various topics he shared with us.

I am so very, very sorry to read this news. I loved reading Richard's columns for SST.

Sir;
I always read one of his essays when I saw it come out. He will be missed as a man who thought deeply about things.
Condolences.

My condolence. I didn’t always agree with him but I respected his honesty and genuine writing. He is missed.

Pancreatic cancer is rough. Since the average life expectancy is 4-8 months unless you are lucky enough to catch it early, have good genes, or a fabulous doctor... that he lived 3 years with it is amazing. One of my classmates from high school died from pancreatic cancer over 3 years ago, about 6 months after her diagnosis. She was 59.

I always enjoyed Richard's contributions. An old school gentleman of a bygone era of journalism. So sorry to hear about his passing, and my condolences on the loss of a dear friend.

Rest in peace, Richard.

Same thing took my father 10 years ago. He made it 13 months in a gallant, grueling fight. Three years with that disease is a crucible unlike any other that I could imagine. I always enjoyed Mr. Sale's writing. It came from a place of intense and profound experience, and his strong principles were always something to admire. May he rest in peace and may his family and friends find solace in his freedom from the suffering.

A.I.S.

My condolesences.

Rest in peace.

Sorry about your friend, Sir.

The Twisted Genius

This is sad news indeed. Richard was a fine writer and his fine soul showed in his writings. He will be missed and, more importantly, fondly remembered through his writings.

Stueeeeee

My condolences, Sir.

I will miss his contributions to SST. Rest in peace.

The closing paragraphs of Mr. Sale’s “Age of Intolerance” are beautiful, prescient and eloquent. Rest well Mr. Sale.
