We've lost Jean Shepherd
. Despite being a New York
er by birth, I never knew who he was, other than the Funny Columnist in Car and Driver
-listening habits didn't include WOR-AM, where he did his
show. I probably wouldn't have cared at the time anyway about some guy
s about some Midwestern backwater
Years later, he did occasional work for
PBS, and I became "mature" enough to dig him. Still later, I caught some of his radio work (Shepherd was kewl punk trash compared to Garrison Keillor's wine-and-cheese milquetoast), but I imagine the stuff he did long before I was born was the coolest. Thanks to the WWW, I can, hopefully, find some old airchecks.
Everything Jones! Actually, I finished unfinished nodes (since I usually
have emacs running, I start 'em at the drop of a hat). Withdrawal was
belated: I was distracted by Real Madrid disgracing itself against Porto in the Champions League.&Shameful! Why wasn't Seedorf in the first XI?
I'll tell you why...
...men in white coats arrive to wipe the
flecks of foam from his mouth and administer sedatives -Ed.
