Bye, Art. It’s Been Fun.

American History, entertainment and popular culture


I remember being an Art Buchwald fan while I was still in elementary school, which was about two centuries ago. We were both a lot younger then.

Art Buchwald died yesterday at the age of 81. He kept working right to the end; there’s an archive of recent columns here. If anyone can find some of his older work online, let me know.

    “Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got” — Art Buchwald, 1925-2007

Update: More from the Library of Congress.

    When I was 9 to 12 years old, I lived a few blocks from the Buchwalds in DC. A year older than his son Joel, I was soon swimming in their pool all summer long. I was already a big fan of his columns. Although a terrible space-case (he could never remember any of his kids’ friends names, no matter how many times we stayed to dinner), he was as sweet, mischevous and funny as you would expect from his columns. A truly wonderful man.

    Thank you, Art, and farewell. Loved your obit.
