Our Dear Studs Terkel

Sing a spiritual for Studs.

I'm so glad I called him the other day and posted what he said here on the Huffington Post. He read your comments and they pleased him. When I spoke with him he sounded so good.

He wanted to live to see Barack Obama elected President of the United States. What a shame that Studs didn't make it. He took us close to the Promised Land.

"It will be always howdy howdy
It will be always howdy howdy
It will be always howdy howdy
and never goodbye."

Studs' friend, the late great gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, sang that song, Move on Up a Little Higher. I hope she's singing it to him now. He liked to listen.

A little more here.
