Farewell Studs Terkel

A few days ago, one of America's true living treasures passed on, Studs Terkel! I was honored enough to be one of Studs radio show guests and I will never forget it. Being with this great man and genius thinker was an amazing experience. At that time his Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Good War, had just been published. He gave me one and inscribed it with: "Here's to peace, grace and beauty - the first we hope for - the second and third you got." A fond farewell Studs-you will be missed!
