I think the first time I saw Alan on TV was on Fox news channel. This was back in 1997 and He (Alan), and Sean Hannity were going at it! I don't have to tell anyone that I am a conservative who happens to be Jewish, but for full disclosure "there it is". I never had the privilege of knowing Alan personally, but I tried never to miss He and Sean go at it on Hannity and Colmes. The BIBLE says that Iron sharpens Iron and I must say that after sharing an hour each night with Alan for all those years, Hannity must be really sharp by now! I have always enjoyed watching Alan debate on behalf of the liberal cause because he was loyal to his cause. And you know what? I unfortunately can't say that about many in the media these days! I new that even if Alan did not agree with his debate opponent, He believed in their right to state their case.
I could never bring myself to believe in Alan's politics but I always believed in Alan. You could depend on him to be the same and that made watching him debate anyone even more fun. We at Down Home Shalom want to express our profound sympathy and sorrow to Alan's wife Jocelyn Crowley and Family for their loss as well as to Alan's other family at the FOX News channel.
