    Damn. Knew he was sick, but hadn't heard anything in a while.

    An acerbic pen and a sharp mind.

    His legacy will always be tainted by the Valerie Plame thing, but his contributions to the public discourse can't be ignored.
  7. Spoke at my Journalism college graduation, and did a good, non-political job. Didn't like a lot of what he said, but he was a man of the craft. RIP.

    Remember, one instance of bad judgment -- even for what seems like a throwaway item in a column -- can haunt you forever.

    Didn't he also hit a pedestrian on a bicycle and flee the scene of an accident or did they find out this was related to the brain tumor? I can't remember.

    Yeah, that was a little more than a year ago. Just a horrible, horrible affliction. RIP, Mr. Novak.

    He went into the hospital about a week after hitting the pedestrian.


    I tried but could never really get into his columns in the Post. But he did have a style all his own, and you could tell he loved being a reporter more than just blowing hot air.

    OK. Two instances of bad judgment.
