Our dear friend Richard Ben Cramer died yesterday . Lung cancer. He was 62.
He was–and is–a mensch of the highest order, a good man, as well as a wonderful storyteller.
Here is a small sampling of his work:
“Men of Honor” 
“Serious Business” 
There will be more in the coming days. Here is a fine piece on Richard by Jonathan Martin .
Our pal is already sorely missed.
