Jack Horkheimer, Directory of Miami’s Space Transit Planetarium and host of the PBS mini-show “Jack Horkheimer: Star Hustler”, has passed away. I remember his show coming on OETA after Doctor Who in the 80′s, and I used to make ruthless fun of his corny delivery. (I still remember the intro voice-over: “Some people hustle pool, some people hustle cars; then there’s that man you’ve heard about, the one who hustles *stars*!”)
In retrospect though, I liked his popped-cork enthusiasm more than I did Sagan’s new-agey “We are all made of star-stuff”. RIP, Jack; we’ll keep looking up.
