I was shocked to hear that Deborah Orin-Eilbeck, the New York Post's Washington DC bureau chief, died yesterday. I once described her as one of my favorites, and linked to several of her columns over the last three years. She did excellent work on national-security issues and general politics. I had no idea she was sick, but apparently she died from cancer:
Deborah Orin-Eilbeck, The Post's longtime D.C. bureau chief whose passion for politics and unrivaled integrity kept Washington on its toes, died yesterday after a battle with cancer.
"Laura and I were saddened to learn of the death of Deborah Orin-Eilbeck," President Bush said.
"Deb had a distinguished, decades-long career as a journalist, covering every presidential campaign since 1980 and joining the New York Post's Washington bureau in 1988.
"Deb fought a valiant battle against cancer with the same tenacity, devotion, and determination that she brought to her work in the White House briefing room through numerous administrations," the president said. "She'll be missed by all of us at the White House who cared deeply for her."
Michelle Malkin has a nice round-up going. Be sure to visit there for links to other remembrances, including Michelle's own. Our prayers and thoughts go out to her family.Sphere It View blog reactions
