Knowing how much this community cares about the written word and the writing world, wanted to bring this articleto everyone's attention.
It's entitled "Finding the Right Words To Remember Him" by Sally Jenkins in the May 11th Washington Post, page D3 of the Sports Section.
She fondly shares her memories of Edwin "Bud" Shrake, known for, among many things, his work in Sports Illustrated and "Harvey Penicks' Little Red Book" which is teh best-selling sports book of all time.
In this glowing tribute, she shares that Bud followed the writing advice of Rudyard Kipling, who insisted that "to write means to be patiently ruled by the subconscious: 'You wait, you listen, you obey.'"
She honors him with her description that he "didn't write pretty, he wrote true Sort of the same way his friend Willie Nelson would transform country music and the way people sang."
