Evan Jenkins, R.I.P.

Evan Jenkins died yesterday at age 72. I had the pleasure of finally meeting Evan at this year's ACES conference, after reading and admiring his Columbia Journalism Review column for years.

His book, "That or Which, and Why," was published this year.

I never had the chance to meet Evan, but we developed an e-mail friendship after I wrote to his column to argue about sentence adverbs. What a great guy. I miss his dumb jokes and his wise counsel -- he was right about those sentence adverbs.
