In 1997, Scott Shuger created for Slate.com what would quickly become the wildly popular column "Today's Papers."
The column was innovative in its brief and snarky discussions about that day's headlines on all the major news dailies.
The differences between each paper's choice of stories covered, and the variances from paper to paper in their coverage of those same stories was illustrative in a fashion we now take for granted around here on MeFi.
Shuger died suddenly over the weekend in a scuba mishap and is remembered here by his colleagues at slate.com.
