RE:  William Safire

Dear Maureen,

Pleasing column on Bill Safire after his passing. I agree with you, he was a mensch.  He metaphorically and in fact had rumpled dignity in his demeanor and in his columns.  His were opinions worth reading.  I remember him and Scotty Reston middle and Tom Wicker on left, sort of a golden age of New York Times for me.
