    New York Times columnist passes, according to several NYT writers on Twitter.

    Supposedly collapsed in the newsroom tonight and died. Unbelievable. He was supposed to be hosting even with Greenwald and company tonight. Obviously loved his Times work, but also loved his old Minnesota stuff and roots. Blended old school and new media brilliantly. And his passion for The Times was just awesome to see.

    The way this is trickling out is way weird. Times employees tweeting about his death, then being asked by other Times employees on Twitter to take those tweets down. David Carr would have a funny column to write if it wasn't true.

    58 hard years though, which he had been very honest about.

    That is a pisser, though. He was at the top of his game.

    Weird? I suspect they were asked to take down the tweets until as much of the immediate family could be informed. Just as we here took down posts when SF died suddenly so the immediate family could be properly notified.
