ALBERT MURRAY & ELMORE LEONARD R.I.P.
These guys were crucial elements in our culture for many decades, and though they both lived long and prospered, they will be missed. I never met either except in the words they wrote in their very different ways, but that was enough to feel I knew at least something about how they saw the world and who they were and what they were contributing to the ongoing evolution of who we are and might be as a country and society.
If you've never read them, you have a treat in store for you.
