People we’ll miss. Studs Terkel. 1912-2008.

Dead in Chicago yesterday at 96.

From his friend, NPR’s Scott Simon, a nice Studs quote...“You just have to give ’em the chance. Everybody’s got their story, just let ’em sing, Pally, let ’em sing!” ’Nuff said.

“My epitaph? My epitaph will be ‘Curiosity did not kill this cat.’”

Lots of archived remembrance of Studs here.
