Not to take this into a week of mourning, but this Associated Press article does a great job of eulogizing Kapuscinski. Give it a read if you have a chance.
Not at all related -- in reading the voluminous "Against the Day," I've stumbled upon a Wiki site for it, here. It's pretty great reference for all the many, many, many little things I'm missing. If anyone else is taking on the book -- it's an entertaining sidekick.
Addendum to the addendum: in the comments, Nanuk passed along this article on Kapuscinski, which is fantastic. Read it too. And now I promise I'm done.
