Life has happened.I wrote obits at the Star with Haynes in charge now alas I am reading them.
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.

I am so sorry for your great loss. My thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family. I shall miss Mr. Johnson and his thoughtfulness.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
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!

A wonderful and talented writer...an intellect's intellect. With the demise of men like Mr. Johnson, the world of journalism gets closer to comic book status. You will be missed, dear friend.
I had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Johnson speak numerous times when I helped organize executive education programs at The Brookings Institution. He had so much knowledge and personal experience to share. I always felt I was in the presence of someone special when he spoke. In addition, he was extremely personable, genuine and kind, which in Washington, is often quite rare. R.I.P.
Your thoroughness and professionalism always shone through. You reported fairly and accurately and even predicted political trends long before other dared to do so. RIP.
Obedient humans will soon receive the full benefit of Jesus' ransom sacrifice.
