A Farewell to Bob 

Well not really farewell since it's not like he died or anything. But Bob Edwards' absence from NPR's Morning Edition seemed more jarring than ever upon hearing ME without him this morning. Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep are fine radio journalists, but they are no Bob. Some people think that's a good thing, whatever. I'll miss him on ME...big time. But he's not going away mad, and NPR seems (belatedly) to understand what Bob Edwards means to so many people. So here's a fine NPR tribute to 30 years of Bob Edwards on the NPR site. Look, they even gave it a unique graphic treatment. Kinda dark, but that's one of the things we love about Bob himself. If you're fan enough to drop $15 for the gesture, you can help elect Bob to the Radio Hall of Fame. Voting is for members only so you have to join. Geez I hate this members-only stuff.
