Mourning Connie Knox
I am very sorry to have to report that I just received word that Connie Knox, a veteran copy editor at The Baltimore Sun and a stalwart member of the Newspaper Guild, has died in her sleep.
Connie, who welcomed me into the Guild when I was hired at The Sun twenty-five years ago, and endured being my subordinate when I ascended into management, retired this spring after more than three decades at the paper. She was a colleague, occasionally an adversary, and always a friend. Our discussions were always cordial, no matter on which side of the desk we were sitting, and I mourn her passing.
She stood up for her people.
A fuller account will appear in The Sun once the information can be assembled.
