The loss of Marjorie Williams hits hard. The recent death on January 16 of Washington journalist Marjorie Williams has spurred an outpouring of tributes from colleagues and admirers. She was the wife of a friend, Tim Noah of Slate magazine, and she combined a gracious spirit with a razor-sharp mind that was captured in her remarkable profiles of Washington power players, combining elegance with hard-hitting and often devastating reporting.
