The great Chicago-based author, broadcaster, and historian Studs Terkel passed away today at the age of 96.
Film critic Roger Ebert -- a legend himself -- remembers the literary giant in an article on the Chicago Sun-Times web site today.
We, of course, remember Terkel for his visit to The Commonwealth Club Silicon Valley on October 30, 2003, when he charmed the audience and talked about all of the "forgotten voices" of the 20th century.
Rest in peace, Studs.
