Studs Terkel passes

[w:Studs Terkel], one of the greatest American characters of the last 100 years, passed away today. The Chicago Tribune obituary is a moving tribute. John Stewart called Studs the “premier chronicler of American life.” He gave voice to working people and he will be missed. I could spend hours listening to his stories and even longer reading his books. Please check them out! We’ll miss you Studs!!
