Such a great voice for liberty, he refused to be an apologist for the police state after those cowards at the New American fired him for writing about said police state. I discovered Grigg on LRC around 2007, so sad to see him gone.
Rest in peace. He was an excellent writer and one of the best contributors at LRC.
I too feel a huge void left by Will's passing. But oddly, I didn't always look forward to reading one of his columns. They were so well researched and so well written that as time went on, I found it increasingly difficult to get through them. The callousness and depravity they documented in government thugs was almost impossible to believe ... yet was incontrovertibly true. It was almost like watching a movie of a WWII concentration camp. The psyche of our rulers today appears to be every bit as twisted, though of course the number of murders they've committed has not ramped up as much in America. Yet. Will threw all that in our faces, one excruciating example at a time, and it hurt.Among his accomplishments, Will was the best extemporaneous speaker I ever recall having heard. When interviewed, he could answer challenging questions with long but clear and perfectly constructed sentences that flowed as if he were reading from a script. I wish there were some way we could bring Will back.
I felt the same. Every article was sure to delve deep in to some atrocity. I even expressed as much in an email. Has anyone set up a GoFundMe for his family?
Now I see it.
I'll miss him, too. He was a great one.
Is there a fund for donations for the family?
Yes. Here is the link. https://www.gofundme.com/medical-support-for-will-grigg?viewupdates=1&rcid=f1f1bd59855d4e71a704a5537941102c&utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&utm_content=cta_button&utm_campaign=upd_n

What a tragic loss, not only to the libertarian community but to his wife and childrenRest in Peace, Will. You were one of the great ones, and you will be missed.
Rest In Peace my friend. Your contributions to liberty and justice will live on through your voluminous published work.
This is so sad, what a loss.
I just cried when I saw his GoFundMe page and all the donations, including $1,000 anonymously. Such a tragic loss for all of humanity.
Hope we will see a volume of his collected works some day. RIP Will Grigg and thank you for tirelessly exposing the bad guys.
