    Boy, I watched this guy almost every week for most of his career. He was always fun to watch.

    They were just showing one of his show intros after one of the worst weeks in Wall Street History. He began by reminding his viewers that their families still love them. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    I watched him too. He and Wall Street Week are certainly icons of the era from Reagen through Clinton.

    Commenting on Rukeyser's landmark format and success, a friend and fellow journalist once asked: "Lou, how does it feel to give birth to an entire industry?" Rukeyser responded: "I don't even have stretch marks".
