Shaughnessy offers a nice tribute to Larry Whiteside, the retired Globe columnist who passed away yesterday.
Shaughnessy usually does a very nice job with retrospective columns - he has a nice way of retelling stories and Shaughnessy gives you a pretty good glimpse of Larry Whiteside.
There are many readers of the blog who would argue that Shaughnessy is a racist but as you read through some of his stuff like this piece on Whiteside or like his new book (which I just finished reading and will post a review this weekend), you get a different side of Shaughnessy
At any rate, I was sad to hear of the passing of Larry Whiteside and I appreciate Shaughnessy's tribute today.
Requiem in Pacem
