    A "smooth and classy" reporter from "60 Minutes", Ed Bradley died this morning of Leukemia. He was 65.

    He always demonstrated to me the power of folksyness. The ability to allow people to be honest just by talking to them.

    And let's not overlook his influence on younger African-American television journalists for whom he was a mentor.

    Did anyone see 60 Minutes last night. The whole show as a great Ed Bradley tribute. Very good for something quickly thrown together.

    I forgot to watch that. I hope it showed some of his famous stories and what stories won him the Emmy's.
