Shit, Snyder's dead...

Tom Snyder, whose wit and eccentricity inspired and influenced such truth tellers as Keith Olbermann, passed away from leukemia. He was seventy-one. Snyder was the kind of interviewer who pulled you in and made you feel as if you were in the room with him. And he wasn't afraid to correct those he interviewed whenever they said something that was factually inaccurate. See, Snyder actually knew stuff. He was a fountain of information both pertinent and mundane. He informed us, whether we -- or his guests -- liked it or not. And now he is gone.
