Good Job, Josh Brodesky

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 10:00 AM

I haven't been entirely kind to Josh Brodesky's work for the Star in the past - I did try to coin a neologism based on his name, after all - but when the guy isn't getting worked up about seemingly minor aspects of Tucson's bureaucracy, he's a really good writer, and his piece on Steve Vihel in today's paper is a good example of that. Vihel was a close friend of several of my friends, so when he passed, I saw several tributes to him on Facebook that made me wish I knew him better. Brodesky's written tribute to the local bike-shop-owner convinced me that I really missed out by not knowing the guy. I can't imagine that column was easy to write, but it's an excellent remembrance of a life cut too short. Well done, Josh.
