Art Buchwald Dies at 81
Art Buchwald has died of kidney failure at the age of 81.
Buchwald amazed everyone a year ago when he decided not to continue dialysis and was given only a few weeks to live. He not only defied the odds, but went on to write a book about it called "Too Soon to Say Goodbye."
"The beauty of not dying but expecting to," he wrote, "is that it gives you a chance to say goodbye to everybody."
