Alison Parker And Adam Ward: Good Journalists Gone Too Soon

npr.org — Mornings are made by routine. The alarm that warbles at the usual hour, the smell of coffee, the sound of familiar voices. Those of us who work the morning shift grow to appreciate the intimacy we have with those who tune in. People wake to our voices. We come into their kitchens.

npr.org — Eighty years ago today, the most famous man in America besides Franklin D. Roosevelt died, and in 1935, I'm not sure you needed to add a "besides." Will Rogers was 55.
