MICHAEL KELLY, R.I.P.: You wouldn't guess it from some of my fellow doves' rhetoric, but not every hawk is a chickenhawk. Michael Kelly, clearly, was brave as well as talented. He was a good writer and a great editor -- the best helmsman The New Republic has had since Kinsley, and the best helmsman The Atlantic has had in my lifetime. I disagreed with him often, sometimes severely. But I always had to respect him, too. May he rest in peace.
