Edwin Newman, R. I. P.

Edwin Newman, TV Journalist, Dies at 91 - Obituary (Obit) - "Edwin Newman, the genteelly rumpled, genially grumpy NBC newsman who was equally famous as a stalwart defender of the honor of English, died on Monday in Oxford, England. He was 91."

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

He was a great one and will be missed. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

So true, Richard. I feel lucky that I could see him every night on the news out of New York. He play reviews could be especially witty.
