    Maybe the best example ever of a guy who stayed too long and tarnished his legacy. Up through about 1990, though, what a legacy it was.

    For what it's worth, I generally make an exception to the two-source rule if I see news posted on a person's or his or her organization's website.

    As for Al Davis, the nicest thing I can say about him is that he resembled my former publisher in his later years and started acting like him, too. In light of Webby's policy against speaking ill of those who have just passed, I'll leave it at that.
  8. I know, but the original post was made about a half an hour ago. I would have expected something, maybe a shefter tweet. Ap alert.
  9. Just did the math on how old he was and the first thing I thought was . . . he looked much older. Either way, RIP.

    A pioneer and a great legacy up until about 15 years ago.

    No it wasn't. It was made like 5 minutes ago. The timer on SJ has been getting slower and slower. Right now, it's 25 minutes behind the time on my laptop.
  12. Well, that would essplain it then. And now that I see my comment was posted at 1017, and not 1041, I understand.
