    I wanted, for a long time, to meet two particular grand old gentlemen of American culture before they died: Buck O'Neill and Studs Terkel. Now they're both gone. Dammit. This man carried with him history such as isn't carried any more. We lost a touchstone to the 20th century today. And a sweet, talented, brave man. RIP.

    The voice of America in many ways. RIP.

    I wonder if he voted early.

  7. Studs Terkel never learned to drive. Of all the things about the man. That was the thing I always wondered about. Why not learn to drive?

    A tiny giant, and one of our greatest oral historians. A fitting tribute for any writer's passing is to read their work. Do so. Go read 'Worklng.'

    Great name, great writer, not a bad actor and seemed like a really good guy. RIP.

    And won his Pulitzer for 'The Good War,' yes? A great big body of work, fallen a little out of fashion lately. The youngsters here can make a fine remembrance of reading him.
