David Broder, R.I.P.

AP reports that David Broder, the "Dean of the Washington Press Corps," died today at 81.

I met him--once--when working as a low level staff weenie on Capital Hill back in '97.

He was as partisan as any WashPost journalist, but in person was thoroughly genteel -- which meant you had to keep up your guard.

May he rest in peace.
