Art Buchwald, Rest in Peace

Art Buchwald has passed away .. and has left us a video obit at the Times.
Buchwald, who went to a hospice last year and was expected to die, outlived the doctors' predictions. He left the hospice, and started writing. Last month, he was on C-Span to promote his new book titled Art Buchwald, Too Soon to Say Goodbye.
Editor and Publisher has a number of stories. "Columnists and Syndicate Execs Pay Tribute to Art Buchwald" is here. His last column, titled "Goodbye, My Friends" is here.
Before his death, he recorded a video obit to be released at the NY Times site. This will, rightly or wrongly, be the first of a series of these.
