The long battle ended Saturday for Nick Charles, who was finallly claimed by The Big C. Story here. I wrote about him earlier this year here. Not really much to add, except that I always enjoyed his work, liked him as far as I could know him through the small screen, liked him that much more as I read about him, and take solace in the thought that finally his pain and suffering is over. Safe journeys.
UPDATE: One reason I didn't write more: Joe Posnanski, who would make any such effort appear even more feeble.◙
