Arthur Schlesinger Passes

From the WaPo:
Historian and intellectual icon Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., a Kennedy confidant and liberal standard-bearer who was a fixture in Washington political life for decades, died Wednesday night in Manhattan at the age of 89.

Schlesinger suffered a heart attack while eating dinner in a New York restaurant with his family, his son Stephen told the Associated Press. He died at New York Downtown Hospital.
Read the entire WaPo Obit, it is very informative. The generational transition continues.
