A Heartbreaking Year for Celebrity Deaths-- Part 7: Politics

Other 2016 deaths:


Shimon Peres, former president and prime minister of Israel.

Former Attorney General Janet Reno.

Phyllis Schlafly, conservative activist whose opposition to feminism created a hero for the political right.


Phil Chess, whose Chess Records on South Michigan Avenue was so big for blues, recording such acts as Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf and many others.


NFL defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan whose fabled "46" defense (named after Doug Plank's number) gave the '85 Bears their only team Championship in Super Bowl XX.  We just saw that game again this past weekend.
