William Safire 

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist William Safire died today.

I very much enjoyed reading his "On Language" column in the New York Times Magazine. It is not an easy task to make etymology interesting and amusing, but Safire accomplished that every week. I learned a great deal from reading his work. Thank you, Mr. Safire, and rest in peace.
