The Rev. Jerry Falwell died today after being found unconscious in his office.
Reason's reporting on the evangelical icon and founder of Liberty University—home of some of the best female basketball and debating teams this republic has ever produced—was copious. In 2005, Ronald Bailey reported from a creationism conference that Falwell organized. This past March Jeff Taylor reported on his surprising (and accidental) good works for pagans. Much more Falwell here.
