In memoriam: Paul Conrad, Richard Holbrooke and Don Meredith [Editorial cartoons]

January 2, 2011 | 12:00 am

We said goodbye to a who's who of notables in 2010. The sports world mourned John Wooden, Bobby Thomson, Manute Bol, Don Meredith, Les Richter, Merlin Olsen and Bob Feller, among others. The entertainment industry bid adieu to Dino De Laurentiis, Mitch Miller, Lena Horne, Jill Clayburgh, Gary Coleman, "Scar" Lopez, John Forsythe, Barbara Billingsley, Dennis Hopper, Tony Curtis, Eddie Fisher, Ronni Chasen, Satoshi Kon, Art Linkletter and many more. Journalism's Daniel Schorr, Paul Conrad and Edwin Newman signed off, and Elizabeth Edwards, Alexander M. Haig, Daryl F. Gates, Charlie Wilson, Richard C. Holbrooke and Robert C. Byrd left the political stage. A few were memorialized by cartoonists, but all will be missed.
