Peter F. O'Malley passed away last Saturday. In earlier times, his death would have received the attention of the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun and many of the local papers, but there may be few people left at those papers that recall the inner-workings of Prince George's County politics in the 70s and 80s.
Washington Post sportswriter John Feinstein did write about O’Malley in a blog post this week. Feinstein covered politics in the county before he switched to sports. Sports coverage, not politics, is where Feinstein belonged, according to O’Malley.
Feinstein covered two stories in his blog post, so you’ll have to scroll down to see Feinstein’s comments about the passing of O’Malley.
