2010: The Year in Obituaries

2010: The Year in Obituaries

We explore the stories behind the people we lost in 2010.

It's the part of the newspaper where an article about the genius behind the slapstick "Naked Gun" movie franchise is printed next to a story about a legendary presidential speechwriter. Memorable figures who left us in 2010 include a boozing-but-effective Congressman from Texas, the ex-wife of a presidential hopeful, and a recluse writer who penned an American classic - just to name a few. We explore the stories behind this year's obituaries.
