Political writer, editor Sydney Kossen dies
Sydney Kossen, a veteran newspaperman whose articles so irritated Richard Nixon that he tried to get Kossen fired, died Sept. 2 at the Reutlinger Community for Jewish Living in Danville. He was 93. Kossen was declared "the dean of Northern California political writers," by Willie Brown. Here's a link to the obit.
