I’m not a conservative and the article on distinguished alumni acknowledged the bias against conservatives, but there are three living Princeton alums I can think of who are at least as distinguished as George Will *68 (tied for No. 21). One is John Stossel ’69, whose journalistic efforts on TV as well as several great books should qualify him, and he’s a libertarian more than conservative. Another is Steve Forbes ’70, whose business, magazines, editorials, and books also make him quite a distinguished alum. The closest to my year and one I met at Princeton is Judge Andrew Napolitano ’72, whose legal and judicial career changed into an online commentary presence as well as several excellent books. I’d like to suggest these three for “honorable mention” at least.
