Arthur Schlesinger is dead. Here’s the NYTimes obit.

He came from a time when being a liberal was something to be proud of. I read the Kennedy books long ago, and especially admired the book on Bobby. Indeed, playing Bobby at a school assembly was my entry into politics, and that book was probably the first truly political book I’d ever read that wasn’t assigned in school. I’ve got a special fondness for Schlesinger. I’ll be rereading the book soon.
