Obis from the Age of the Baby Boomers

It's time for our Obi awards (I just made this up for today), which simply means the offering of obituaries for those who were at the top of their games during the lives of us Baby Boomers (those born during the period of 1946 to 1964) and have passed away:

David Levine
, political caricaturist par excellence, with the NY Review of Books. Another blogger's (Ted Burke) appreciation is here, complete with the famous LBJ caricature that will stand the test of time.

Tim Hart, one of the two true leaders of the English folk band, Steeleye Span, a wonderful band (The other true leader? Maddy Prior). Listen here and here for two examples from their best album, "Below the Salt" (1972).

Your book sounds interesting. I'm a writer, too. I'm a consumer journalist and have written for four newspapers. I'm just starting to write books.
