BRADY--James. The staff of Parade magazine mourns the loss of a dear friend and colleague, James Brady, author, journalist and writer of Parade's popular "In Step With" celebrity profile column. Every Sunday for nearly 25 years, Brady provided a glimpse into the lives of some of the nation's most beloved celebrities--and some up-andcomers who are relatively new to the national spotlight. "Jim was a friend to the 73 million Americans who looked forward to his column each week, and he was a friend to all of us here at Parade," said CEO and Chairman Walter Anderson. "He was also a decorated war hero and a towering figure in American journalism. He will be extraordinarily missed." Walter Anderson, Chairman
