The Wall Street Journal today has an op-ed up on Irving Kristol, (really just a collection of quotes from Kristol, which is likely the best way to handle such things)  Forbes is reporting Kristol as having died at age 89 in Falls Church, VA a few hours ago.

Kristol, has been dubbed the “godfather of neoconservatism“. And yes, he’s William Kristol’s father, the younger being the founder and the current editor at the Weekly Standard.

For whatever it’s worth, the official cause of death if complications due to lung cancer.

Consolences to the family.
