Tom Blair, well-known San Diego columnist, dies at 74

The recent passing of award winning journalist/writer Tom Blair is a great loss.

Tom's column in the San Diego Union-Tribune was the must read for every San Diegan who wanted to be in the know. He is also the former Editor of San Diego Magazine and a well known writer.

Tom and I were good friends and we kept each other informed of the latest San Diego gossip and rumors about the movers and shakers around town. We both helped then-Councilman Carl DeMaio come out of the closet. Tom, who was a proud gay man, helped and supported many LGBTQ organizations.

Rest in peace old friend.
