I will never forget the journalism seminar at Princeton I was privileged to take with Haynes. It was exciting, thought-provoking, challenging, and very fulfilling. Too few times afterwards, I reached out to thank him for that experience or for producing another outstanding book. Each time, he was insightful and gracious. I am so glad that I got to know him.

Our hearts grieve with you for your recent loss; and we hope that you find comfort in God's love, his promises, and the expressions of family and friends. Rest assured that God has witnessed the deeds of Mr. Johnson, and his record of reporting national news with fairness and integrity are firmly etched within God's memory. Certainly Jesus had such a man like Mr. Johnson in mind when he spoke the words at Luke 23:43 to the man who had just put faith in him: "You will be with me in Paradise." Until that time, it is with deep respect that we say goodbye to a great journalist!
