RIP William Woo


I used to work for Mister Woo. I worked for the paper for about a year before he got there. Woo was the editor of the Post from 86 to about 96. Interesting fella. He had quite a personal history that goes back to pre WWII China, and was the first non-inside family man to head the ship. I was never allowed to meet him when I worked there. He passed on Wednesday. I was very happy when he helped make the move to a reduced smudge ink back in 89.

You are older than you sound. Woo joined the PD in the 1960s.

Heck if I know. I was a paperboy when I was 12. I just remember him being named head man.

When I was 12 I was playing ball and trying to sneek a grab here and there.....you were following the comings and goings of the editor of the P-D.
You are Alex Keaton.
