Back in Minnesota, Jauert stayed plugged in until the end, recalled Washington lobbyist Dennis McGrann, who had worked with him in Sikorski’s office. When Jauert discovered that his nursing home carried only Fox News and CNN, he got the management to set up a dish to provide MSNBC as well.

For McGrann and others, Jauert will always be remembered for the Martin Luther King sign-off on his e-mails: “Not only will we have to repent for the sins of bad people; but we also will have to repent for the appalling silence of good people.”
