"I hope for peace and sanity — it's the same thing." - Studs Turkel

Studs Turklel has passed.

I have read several of Turkel's books including: "Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do", "Race: What Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About The American Obsession" and "Giants of Jazz".  I have been greatly affected by both his writing and his contributions to Chicago radio.  His observations were invaluable to my beginning to understand a bit about the human condition.  I will miss hearing his voice. 

"Take it easy...but take it!"

Amen to that, Studs!

Here is a link to The Trib's story.
