R.I.P. Art Buchwald

"Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got." - Art Buchwald

Political columnist Art Buchwald died Wednesday night at the age of 81.

Anyone who has ever read Buchwald will mourn his passing. Anyone who hasn't read Buchwald should read him. For a humorous political look at the second half of the 20th century, Buchwald is a must-read.

The most fitting tribute I saw to Buchwald was by writer Suzette Martinez Standring, who called him the "patron saint of political satire."
