Richard Ben Cramer, R. I. P.

NYTimes.com: Richard Ben Cramer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and the author of “What It Takes,” a prodigious account of the 1988 presidential election that has been widely hailed as among the finest books about American politics ever written, died on Monday night in Baltimore. He was 62.

Hat tip to Jeff Meyerson.

I read Richard Ben Cramer's book on politics. A classic! To me, 62 is way to young to check out of Life.
