Studs and Himself
With the passing of Studs Terkel and DFW last month, Mr. Terkel’s quote is very apt.
“With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, ‘Studs, you’re an optimist.’ I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what’s the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.”
