Tail light out

My driver's side tail light is out (tried changing the bulb) but all the other lights work including the other tail light and all running lights. Is it a short in the taillight assembly? If so, how do I go about looking for it?
Thank you for any help you might offer.

If it was a short, you'd have a popped fuse. Look for a poor ground (do the other lights in the cluster work?), a broken wire, or a dirty contact in the cluster. Being in the back, there's tons of crud looking for a place to land.
