The Washington Post pays tribute to former White House Press Secretary James Brady, who died yesterday at 73. Writer Jon Thurber details Brady’s courageous comeback from the gunshot wound that nearly took his life during an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. Brady and his wife Sarah became the faces of the gun control movement in the United States. Brady was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, by President Clinton in 1996.
