I'm Don Hurst's son. You may know him, you may not but he's been posting here since 1996 and is unabashedly a democrat. He mentioned this site to me many times over the decades but this is the first time I've visited. Everyone needs their online privacy I guess. Speaking of, I never could get Don to join Facebook, he thought they would invade his privacy. My retort was always, "well you use your real name on Silicon Investor!" Anyway, Don passed away last night in his wife's arms with his kids by his side. I know he loved this site and he loved to debate politics and trade stocks. Don had been sick for a while with prostate cancer and my advice is get it checked out early rather than later. Recently he was sure that Trump had a key to his house and was stealing his money. Anyway, maybe you remember, maybe you don't but know that he loved this community.
Btw, you should read this great article about the Mooch.
