Longtime Post columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner William Raspberry died Tuesday at the age of 76. The Post Editorial Board writes that he “demonstrated that civility and principle can co-exist, that passion doesn’t preclude compromise and that people can hold on to their convictions without insisting that anyone who disagrees is evil. His way of stating his opinions with an understanding that they might sometimes be wrong, and of listening respectfully to other views, distinguished Mr. Raspberry during four decades of writing commentary for The Post, and it is particularly missed today.” Below are links to a selection of Raspberry’s columns, spanning from his early years as a local columnist during the Washington riots to his final piece written on the election of the nation’s first black president.
