Warren Leary: Science Writer for the AP and New York Times

From a post on nasawatch.com by Keith Cowling about the death of Warren Leary:

I just learned that Warren Leary died suddenly yesterday. Warren was one of the very first actual journalists I got to know when I started doing NASAWatch. He was a consumate pro with a strong social conscience and a warm heart. He was the sort of old fashioned journalist who just pushed through every story to get at the core of what was going on.
