RIP newsman Michael Kaufman

    Amen, Waylon. He sounds like a great shining example of what journalism used to be.

    Pancreatic cancer, apparently, is one of the most aggressive/opportunistic of all cancers. Hopefully Mr. Kaufman went pain-free and peacefully. RIP.

    Sounds like he led an awesome life. RIP

    And kudos to the Times writer who wrote the obit. That was a great read.
