Dear Dave:

We say goodbye to a broadcast legend in Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) News Correspondent Morley Safer tonight this one final Sunday night. Canadian by birth, only the world's greatest journalists make "60 Minutes", CBS News Magazine & Morley did so.

Before that, Morley reported for the superb Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) News & was also a newspaperman at various Ontario papers. Morley is that rare breed of journalist. Tough as nails & just as cantankerous as the late & great Mike Wallace (which if you knew Mike, you pretty much had to be.) This got him Mike's respect & made him stronger in his reportage.

From covering war to domestic issues, Morley knew journalism cold & it clearly showed in his professionalism. My favourite pieces of Morley's were when he discussed his love & hatred of art as they were so refined, so nuanced in style.

Fantastic Suits & Ties & Pocket Squares,
