Daniel Schorr Would Have Approved

Daniel Schorr, a REAL journalist (remember those?), passed away at 93 yesterday and I post this in his honor. 

Schorr had a 62-year career, but NEVER became a dinosaur.  He understood the changing climate of news with the addition of the blogosphere, did not discredit the bloggers as journalists, but still hoped for good grammar practices. 

I loved to listen to his commentary on NPR in recent years and often times it seemed like his was only voice that made any sense.  He was also SUPER COOL because he made it onto Nixon's enemies list.

Don't worry, Daniel!  You won't meet Nixon where you're going.  He'll be further south.
