I can’t recall any specific articles I have read with David Rosenbaum’s byline attached, but I am certain that in the decade or more of “my morning coffee” (what I call my copy of the New York Times) I relied on his reporting. This political junkie will miss his presence.

David Rosenbaum, Reporter for Times Who Covered Politics, Dies at 63 (New York Times):

David E. Rosenbaum, a retired reporter and editor for The New York Times who for more than 35 years wrote about the intersection of politics, economics and government policy with uncommon depth, clarity and a keen eye for the story behind the story, died Sunday. He was 63.

His death was caused by a brain injury suffered when he was struck in the head and robbed Friday night while walking near his home in Northwest Washington, police officials and his family members said.

Mr. Rosenbaum served at various times as chief Congressional correspondent, chief domestic policy correspondent, chief economics correspondent, assistant news editor and business editor in the Washington bureau of The Times.

My sympathies go out to Mr. Rosenbaum’s family, friends and colleagues.
