Stephen Gordon, a very good friend of mine and fellow libertarian, was involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday evening in his hometown of Hartselle, Alabama. From what I’ve been told, a truck crossed over into his lane and hit him head on, causing his car to flip. In addition to Steve’s lungs collapsing, he suffered broken ribs and a broken ankle. He was airlifted to a hospital in Huntsville and is in critical, but stable condition. The good news is his prognosis is positive.
Steve is a great guy. The guy would literally give you the shirt off his back. We’ve been friends for a several years now and worked together on Bob Barr’s presidential campaign in 2008. News of this really hit me hard, I damn near took off work yesterday to drive to Huntsville. He’s been a mentor to me, and like I mentioned, a very good friend.
Please keep Steve and his awesome wife, Deb, in your thoughts and prayers.
