Interesting story from 1989 about Tedd O'Connell:

Doubly interesting for its pre-Internet perspective, from back when the "news media" meant TV and newspapers, and maybe radio.

If people don't read their newspapers to augment their television, we're in real trouble as a society.

Truer words...

It's a recent phenomenon to have important local figures who were covered in Isthmus die. In cases like this, it's cool to be able to find old pieces Isthmus ran and re-publish them on the site. We did it for Lee Dreyfus and now Tedd O'Connell.

That puts to rest the old thing about there being no such thing as bad press.
