~Studs Trekel R.I.P..Goodbye to a Chicago Legend

CHICAGO — Studs Terkel, the ageless master of listening and speaking, a broadcaster, activist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author whose best-selling oral histories celebrated the common people he liked to call the "non-celebrated," died Friday. He was 96.

He was a native New Yorker who moved to Chicago as a child and came to embrace and embody his adopted town, with all its "carbuncles and warts," as he recalled in his 2007 memoir, "Touch and Go." He was a cigar and martini man, white-haired and elegantly rumpled in his trademark red-checkered shirts, an old rebel who never mellowed, never retired, never forgot, and "never met a picket line or petition I didn't like."

"A lot of people feel, 'What can I do, (it's) hopeless,"' Terkel told The Associated Press in 2003. "Well, through all these years there have been the people I'm talking about, whom we call activists ... who give us hope and through them we have hope."

~"Fake Ass Dave Chapelle" Tony Rock and His Lame Ass Show...Basically Wednesday Night TV Blows!!!

...this show sucked.....overbearing,lame and cliche racial humor, completely missing the humor and cutting edge nature of the extremely funny chapelle show...
it sucked and "Flavor Slave's" new show is also a stereotypical piece of crap...

and on another very cynical note Arsenio Hall's new Viral video show sucks as well...he's bein a total unfunny doofus, peddlin this week "funniest viral video"..whatever dude.
