Remembering Arthur Schlesinger

While I was writing my earlier post this evening, Jen read the announcement that Arthur Schlesinger Jr. has passed away at the age of 89. Very sad to lose one of the towering figures of historical and political letters for the last half a century. Mr. Schlesinger happened to be Jen's third cousin, and it adds some poignancy to reading the obituary of this great man. He passed away while he was at dinner with friends, and frankly we should all be so lucky to end that way, after living such a life.
