Studs Terkel was on the Daily Show last night.
He's 94 years old. He doesn't speak clearly and hears even worse. But he did say one thing that I think I may remember forever:"A commoner can tell the royalty to "Bugger off!" I have a public servant -- you have a public servant -- I have a president (so-called). And the fact is, I can tell the President to bugger off! That is being American."
Yeah, that was pretty great.
I think I'd like to read his new book. Although I doubt he talks about Jon Stewart's next topic -- "Race: The AfroSpanicIndioAsianization of America."
