The Daily Goodbye

Patricia Sullivan

Herbert G. Klein, a newspaperman and longtime Nixon aide, died after a heart attack Thursday in La Jolla, Calif. at age 91. He worked for Nixon through many elections and was his White House communications director through part of the Watergate scandal, leaving in 1973.

You can achieve your mark in this world in many ways. For example, a television director John Pettman brought Herbie the skateboarding duck to television.

The Edgar Award is pretty prestigious for mystery writers, and a two-time Edgar winner has died: Jay Bennett, 96, won consecutive Edgar Awards for best juvenile novel for The Long Black Coat (1974) and The Dangling Witness (1975). A third book, The Skeleton Man, was nominated in 1987.

I'm going to keep this short today but don't forget to check out the Washington Post's own obits page. if you're hungry for more. Have a happy Independence Day.
