From the obit columns

Studs Terkel has died. I know next to nothing about him or his life, but I do know he had an absolutely brilliant moniker. "Name?" "Terkel. Studs Terkel." Lucky bugger. How could he have failed to succeed (in, er, whatever he did)?

Studs Terkel started out in life as a mere Louis - if he can do it, what's stopping you?

My only up close and personal encounter with his work is his absolutely toe-curling sleeve notes for a John Lee Hooker album I have. It could fill Pseuds Corner for weeks.
