R.I.P. David Shaw

One of the great journalists in the United States, David Shaw, died Monday in Los Angeles. Shaw covered the media for the Los Angeles Times for more than 30 years, and was a trailblazer in criticizing his own paper. In the last few years, Shaw turned his talents to writing about his long time obsession -- food and wine -- with the passion of a briliant amateur. A great career, one profiled in his paper's obituary.
