I just learned that Ed Bradley, the 60 Minutes journalist, died today.
I read Wikipedia's entry on him. Typical of Bradley, there was no mention of his being an African-American. While he often reported on black celebrities and issues (he won a Peabody award for his report on African AIDS), Ed was simply a journalist.
One hell of an excellent, ethical journalist.
The world is a less bright place for his passing.
God bless you, Ed Bradley. I have no doubt the Lord himself will be waiting to welcome you home.
