There's been a sudden rush of deaths this week, and though each has struck me in separate ways, I find the most painful passing to beb that of Tom Snyder.
I used to love Snyder's late night talk show on CBS. I really responded to his casual nature and his friendly face, the stylish substance of his show accompanied me to REM sleep more than a few nights in my formative years. I'll miss Bergman. I'll miss Antonioni. But I'll really miss Snyder.
