Jimmy Breslin, the cigar-chomping, Pulitzer-Prize winning newsman who became the voice of ordinary New Yorkers and the scourge of wise guys and crooked politicians, has died. He was 88. Breslin's death was confirmed by his wife, Ronnie Eldridge, a New York politician and television host and other family. "Jimmy Breslin was a furious, funny, outrageous and caring voice of the people who made newspaper writing into literature," said Daily News Editor-in-Chief Arthur Browne.
