Public TV's iconic "Star Hustler" Jack Horkheimer passed away at age 72 on Friday 8/20/2010. Many of you may remember him from his weekly 5 minute segment that appeared on public TV stations prior to nightly sign off. The program which started in Florida first appeared on PBS in 1985. As most stations now run 24 hours it has been harder to find his short programs but they are available over the web.
