John Leonard

Yeah, I know that I promised I wouldn't put up any more weepy post-election stuff, but at the urging of my brother, I just can't resist this one.

John Leonard was a pretty famous guy that would frequent CBS' ever wonderful Sunday Morning program on occasion among other things. You can't be too shabby of a person when your Wikipedia references have glowing quotes about you from both Studs Terkel and Kurt Vonnegut.

His son writes for Salon and has eulogized his dad thusly.

And so it goes.
