Dave Perkins has the definitive obit on Milt Dunnell, the best Canadian sportswriter who ever was.
One lasting lesson from Dunnell, as Stephen Brunt noted in the Globe & Mail on the occasiona of his 100th birthday in 2005, was that the laziest way to start any piece of writing was with the the word "I." It's been taken to heart.
