It's with a puzzling mix of emotions -- mostly compassion and sensitivity -- that we report Jack Valenti, former Kennedy and LBJ cabinet member, and 38-year head of that most reviled of entertainment associations, the MPAA, died today at 85. Oddly, Jack was actually the subject of the very first Engadget Interview way back in 2004, and like him or not, he leaves a profound legacy of influence in politics, entertainment, and even on digital media as we know it today. So long, Mr. Valenti.
