    "Consequential, charismatic" Post Watergate editor Ben Bradlee dead at 93

    Postscript: Benjamin C. Bradlee (1921-2014) (New Yorker)

    The soles of his shoes parted. He sat up in his chair. I could see his face, and he was, for a moment, a threatening sight. And then he smiled, fantastically, and said, “What! Me? Worry? I am a dangerous man.” He led me back to the door. “So get the f*ck outta here,” he said. “And get back to work.”
    See link above for the rest of this excellent remembrance by David Remnick.

    The term Legend often gets used too freely, IMO, but the term certainly fits Mr. Bradlee. What an amazing life and amazing career.

    Rest in Peace.
