LAT Pulitzer-Prize winning editorial writer Bill Stall died Sunday of complications from pulmonary disease.

According to the obit by Jon Thurber:

“Bill’s legacy is his work,” Jim Newton, the editorial page editor of The Times, said Sunday. “He was an incisive analyst of California government and politics whose writing on those subjects is as current today as it was when he wrote it — testament to his prescience as well as to the enormity of the subjects he tackled. We’d be a better state if more people had listened to him at the time.”
