Daniel Schorr, 1916-2010

As reported in today's New York Times. Click on the picture from the Times for the link to the story..

As my wife said today, we will miss that voice of reason in a sea of insanity and madness.

I first paid attention to Mr. Schorr during the Nixon Administration where he covered that tumultuous and dangerous time in our history. Mr. Schorr gave one of the annual lectures at the Univ. of Rochester and left us in awe. He was a giant among men and among journalists.

Dan was a protege of Edward R. Murrow. I guess it is therefore appropriate to say "Daniel, good night and good luck". I am sure where Dan is going, he will not need the luck. Shalom, Daniel.

Great set of pics of Dan Schorr's life here on the NPR site.
