I just heard that Daniel Schorr, a journalist of almost legendary stature, passed away this morning.

R.I.P. - I'll miss him.

You can scratch 'almost' from your commentary Bruce.

I just heard the news while coming back from lunch. His commentaries made a lot of sense.

We lost a giant. Very sad but he did good for a very long time.

We should all live so long with such mental agility and dignity.

I will miss his insight and wisdom, a point of view that I always respected.
A man from the greatest generation who kept the American experience in perspective and valued the contribution of the greater good.

One of the last who thought his duty was to clear away the BS rather than sell it.

"This is Daniel Schorr" Classy guy, there's more than a few who could take lessons from him - it will be a long time before we see the likes of his generation of news reporters.

Oh, and Bruce - nice to 'see' you.

A life well lived, he had become part of my life. I'll miss his broadcasts.

Did you know that he sang with Frank Zappa's band at the Warner Theater in D.C.? I sure didn't.
Sang "It Ain't Necessarily So.."....

The whale swallowed Jonah, you know.

Yup.

Daniel Schorr. He was one of those guys who never really made the limelight, but everybody who did wishes he had.

A real stalwart.

Schorr, in his career with the networks, demonstrated that honesty can stand in the way of advancement.

But he also showed us that the honorable way is the best way. Not just in professional terms, but as a strategy for life.

(Tears in my eyes— I'll miss his voice in the morning.)
