Remembering Louis Rukeyser
Depraved Librarian has a dedication to Louis Rukeyser, celebrating his plain-talking presentation of stock market and economic matters, doing for the dismal science what Julia Child did for the kitchen.
Rukeyser recently passed away.
I remember having to watch Rukeyser's Wall Street Week on PBS for a high school economics class. We learned about the stock market, and then had a contest to see who could earn the most on the stock market with a hypothetical pool of money (I sucked).
I'll miss that dry delivery, crooked smile, and campy sense of humor.
Thanks Louis, and thank you PBS for your vision in providing a program of this type years before cable came up with the idea.
