RIP Tom Magliozzi

They are going to loan me a laptop at work fortunately, but the guy didn't get around to it today.

But I couldn't let the day go by without acknowledging the death of Tom Magliozzi, the older of the two Car Talk brothers. I wasn't surprised to learn he died from Alzheimer's, it was clear to me by the last year of the show that he was losing it - he was saying odd, embarrassing things that Ray could not cover for, although he tried. I alluded to it in my blog post about Ray.

Although I did prefer Ray, I still feel bad about Tom dying. It just doesn't seem right that such sweet-natured and funny guys like that can die.
