Russell Baker, R.I.P. -- Pulitzer-Winning Times Columnist and Humorist, Dies at 93. (NY Times)
I never met Russell Baker, but read his column, three times a week, starting as a junior high school student. He and Tom Wicker personified what a newspaper columnist should be -- erudite, factual, humorous and indignant. He will be greatly missed.
