R.W. Apple dies
R.W. Apple, famed reporter and editor at The New York Times, has died at age 71. This obit at the NYT site notes that Apple was on occasion "cruelly short-tempered with hotel clerks, copy editors and political aides."

UPDATE: The Times has published Apple's final story, a list of his favorite restaurants worldwide. The use of the word "gourmand" in the headline is appropriate.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The headline on the story now reads "gourmet" instead. Both words fit Apple, but I like it the first way better.
