I'm saddened to learn of the death of Ed Bradley,65, from leukemia.
During his 26 years on 60 Minutes, Bradley carried out his work with passion and intelligence. I suspected Bradley could get tough if needed, but he was always professional on air. And passionate. That he loved learning about people and about life was obvious.
I had my ear pierced after Bradley did his, several years ago. At the time I recall thinking that if Ed Bradley could pull it off in the buttoned-down meeting rooms of CBS, no one should question my silly little anti-establishment statement.
TV journalism was better because of him. He will be missed.
