Two great losses for the arts and humanity--Achebe and McKiver

I wanted to acknowledge two great gentlemen who passed while I was away on vacation. Even though late, this blog should not go without mention of their lives and legacy. Here are their New York Times obituaries.

Chinua Achebe, African Literary Titan, Dies at 82
by Jonathan Kandell, The New York Times, March 22, 2013

Lawrence McKiver, a Singer in Long Tradition, Dies at 97
by Margalit Fox, The New York Times, April 1, 2013
