Sorry, Art Cohn

Kelly Hogan says that Art Cohn died in the same plane crash that took the life of Elizabeth Taylor's third husband Mike Todd. Megan Abbott adds, "I also read he was a civil rights advocate in the sports world!" (Exclamation point hers. That's one thing I love about Megan Abbott: she uses as many exclamation points in private correspondence as I do.) The main thing is that now I feel especially rotten for taking potshots at his prose style. It never pays to be mean. Sorry, Art Cohn! Here is a poster for the movie of his book.
