Painful goodbye’s to two journalists who brought sobriety and scholarliness to their work: Ellen Willis and Ed Bradley (aka Teddy). I particularly loved Willis’ essay about the Velvet Underground in Stranded not to mention the stalwart work she did as a Village Voice editor and a writer for the Nation. As for Bradley, aside from his cool, calm interview style on 60 Minutes, he was a constant booster of New Orleans music not to mention the host of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
