What I guess I was trying to say in yesterday’s post is that I had a huge intellectual crush on Tom Trusky, and I’m going to miss him.
Everyone ought to have a chance to hear his voice and his nutty sense of humor. There’s a tiny clip on BSU Radio here. I got into my car yesterday afternoon, turned the key, and his laugh burst out of the car speakers. Fantastically shocking – needless to say, I didn’t leave the parking lot for a few minutes. His voice, unexpectedly broadcast, and the comments from his long-time friend, Alan Virta, really got to me. I wish you’d listen to it. Tom’s laugh will make you smile.
There’s a Trusky interview podcast here, as well, but I haven’t been able to get it to play. Not sure what it says or whether it works.
