    What a loss for all those who new and loved him. He was a true champion of underdogs and lost causes. The last scene of They Might Be Giants, Steve really liked that scene. I’ll bet he skated right on through and is telling preposterous shaggy dog stories somewhere even now. I=m glad that he was a texan for a few tears anyway. See you soon.
