ANALYSIS/OPINION:

What devastating news to read that Wesley Pruden passed away this week (“Washington Times editor, columnist Wesley Pruden dies at 83 after remarkable six-decade career,” Web, July 18). Mr. Pruden may have been a “newspaperman,” but he was also an extraordinary wordsmith. I read all of his columns beginning in 1982 and ending on Tuesday with his marvelous “The four noisy horseladies of the Apocalypse.” There was never a Pruden column that didn’t make me laugh, introduce me to a new word or explain an issue without politically weaponizing it!

Wesley Pruden will be greatly missed. In fact, he is irreplaceable.
