More on Mike Wallace

First, it should be noted that when I first posted about Mike Wallace dying, I wrote Dan Rather instead. Which was wrong, but hey, you get old, shit happens. The spin off is significant, however. For a couple of moments, the world--or some subset of the world--thought Dan Rather was dead. For this, I apologize.

Second, a couple of people have said I should have been nicer to the man (how mean was I?). So here's a clip of his interview with Barbra Streisand.

It doesn't include a particularly nasty question about what her mother told Wallace. I couldn't find it, but manoman, it was a cheap shot.

In the interest of balance, the Times has a lengthy obit here. I'm sure it's glowing, by and large.
