2. He was on Democracy Now with Amy Goodman for a full hour about 2 months
or so. He is recuperating from surgery, but fine enough to go to NYC for the interview.

3. I love Terkel
Hope he's doing well. He had surgery not too long ago.

Any thread asking about Studs needs a Terkel quote. :)

From "The Good War"

"World War Two has warped our view of how we look at things today. We see things in terms of that war, which in a sense was a good war. But the twisted memory of it encourages the men of my generation to be willing, almost eager, to use military force anywhere in the world."

"It was one war that many who would have resisted 'your other wars' supported enthusiastically. It was a 'just war,' if there is any such animal. In a time of nuclear weaponry, it is the language of a lunatic."
