Dear NYT: That’s It? That’s The Sendoff You Give The Great Malcolm Browne?

From yesterday’s New York Times (page B11):

Malcolm W. Browne, 81, Pulitzer Winner

Malcolm W. Browne, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter whose four-decade career included covering the Vietnam War — and taking one of the most memorable photos of the conflict — and a lively second act as a science writer who explained chemical weapons and described the rise of synthetic body parts, died on Monday in Hanover, N.H. He was 81.

He was also an iconic figure in journalism – and at the Times – whose obituary should have been on the front page.

The Times obit was far too sketchy to do him justice.
