Barry Bingham Jr., RIP

Barry Bingham Jr., RIP: When I was very young, for several months I worked in an obscure and lowly (but tremendously fun) job at a great newspaper then run by Barry Bingham Jr., who died this morning. Sadly, the Bingham family, which had a series of Kennedyesque family tragedies, ended up imploding their family media empire and one of the nation’s great newspapers became just another Gannett property.
