Jack Anderson, 10/19/1922 - 12/17/2005

This has been a bad month.

Jack Anderson, investigative journalist and Pulitzer winner and self-described muckraker, passed away at his Bethesda home. An article in the Washington Post once described his column as
"a column of tweaks, leaks and piques, born of idealism, stoked by cynicism, a brazen, high-risk, righteously indignant antiwaste, anticorruption, anticommunist watchdog of a column that has been called everything from 'gold' to 'garbage.' Sometimes on the same day. Sometimes in the same sentence."

Washington Post memorial is at "Investigative Journalist Jack Anderson, 83, Dies"
