Farewell Studs Terkell

Ok, so this has nothing to do with Austin. It’s worth marking his passing, age 96. I suspect in the coming days there will be many tributes, and probably, in the way only American TV can, they will glamorise his life. He wouldn’t have wanted that. Certainly back in the 1970’s in the public library in Hemel Hempstead in the UK, outside of movies featuring Steve McQueen, or John Wayne, Terkell was my true source of insight into the true American persona.

Fairwell Studs, from all the ordinary people.
