James Bellows, RIP

Jim Bellows was an infamous newspaper editor that had worked in New York, LA, and DC. From his LA Times obituary:

Bellows was "a newspaperman with verve and bravery in equal measure, who always backed up his reporters, and who loved nothing better than to do a joyous rain dance in a hail of criticism," Dowd, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who worked at the Star before landing at the New York Times, once wrote of her former boss.
May he find peace in the great newsroom beyond.
