RIP: King Corcoran

It’s been a while since we’ve run an obit—which, when you think about it, is probably a good thing. But I couldn’t resist posting a link to this morning’s Washington Post remembrance of King Corcoran, “the poor man’s Joe Namath.”

Although we here at the “Monkey Cage” have an extremely broad conception of politics, this item has nothing at all to do with politics. King seems to have been too busy pursuing his other interests to bother about politics.
