The Associated Press  has reported:
WASHINGTON – Columnist Art Buchwald, who chronicled the life and times of Washington with an infectious wit for over four decades and endeared himself to many with his never-say-die battle with failing kidneys, is dead at 81.
We all gotta go. I like the way that Art went, smiling.

“Every time you think television has hit its lowest ebb, a new program comes along to make you wonder where you thought the ebb was.”
… given my comments this morning on “American Idol”, you may gather we were of like mind, here.
Fortune smiles on us that we still have his printed and recorded wit.
