I'm so sorry to hear this. He was a gentleman and a knowledgeable debater. We need more of his kind, who deal in facts and researched opinions.
It's harder to hate close up.

So many of the TOTVers I have interacted with since July of 2007 have passed. I remember many of them but Carl from Tampa has a special place for his often sticking up for those be cyber bullied on here. And he often had something to add that would calm people down. Guess that was part of his experiences as a negotiator with the Tampa police.

I, too, am so sorry to hear this; he always added wisdom to any discussion he chose to enter. I had been missing him since he stopped posting. I hope his children and loved ones read these tributes.

Sorry to hear of Carl’s passing. Carl’s posts were always not only well researched and smart but wise. Prayers for the family. Jim
