Rest in Peace, Tom Magliozzi

Tom Magliozzi, from NPR's Car Talk show, has died of complications from Alzheimer's at the age of 77.

I've been listening to that show for over 20 years. Judi, my first wife, couldn't stand Tom's laugh. Fortunately for both of us, I would usually listen to the show while she was in church on Sunday mornings.

The diagnosis of Alzheimer's explains the retirement of the Magliozzi brothers a few years ago. Their show continues, in reruns, and I still listen to them every weekend.
