I didn’t know Gwen personally, but I admired her greatly. She was, I think, what journalism should be: aloof but incisive, direct yet polite, always inviting yet uncompromising.

David Brooks has a moving eulogy in The Times about her. He, like me, senses a change in the air. And we needed Gwen to address this change. We needed her presence.

May her memory be eternal.
