Giving Sidney the cheese

My first legitimate stereo, which I bought the summer before (or perhaps after) my first year of college, featured a Harman Kardon receiver and those big wood-cased speakers. Man, that was some good listening. And now Sidney Harman--the brains of that particular operation--is dead.

Before he left, however, he bought, and breathed new life into Newsweek. Being a genetically-determined print guy, I appreciate that.

A nice obit can be found, fittingly enough, at the Daily Beast (which recently merged with Newsweek). Go here.

Me? I think I'm going to subscribe to Newsweek. My small homage to Sidney Harman (or fromage--whichever isn't the cheese).
