Daniel Schorr Has Died

Daniel SchorrA real lion of journalism has left us at age 93.

I first saw this news on CBS's site. They were kind enough to link to a story featuring a nice set of photos, on NPR's site, whence the above.

And here are some obits: from the NY Times, WaPo, and LA Times.

Everyone says he was at it up till the very end before succumbing to a brief illness. The LAT says his last broadcast on NPR aired July 10.

NPR's Ken Rudin asks, "How many people remember than Dan was pals with Frank Zappa??" He then links to reflections from, among others, his colleagues Scott Simon and Frank James.
