An update on Joe Resnick, the Associated Press sportswriter I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.
Joe died on Sunday morning, claimed by the cancer he silently battled, not telling many friends and deciding he’d die alone at home and assuming he’d be forgotten.
His friends found out and would have nothing of such talk.
Here’s the piece I wrote.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
