    Like I said above - he really hated that whole celebrity aspect to what he did...  He was a true newspaper man, a true champion to the little guy, and a true rough-around-the-edges, don't-suffer-fools lightly guy.  

    The one time I spoke to him - I got both, too - the hilarity and the gruff (mostly the gruff, but just like a great Royko column -- the end/punchline was pure hilarity).

    It's so rare that meeting one's idols doesn't disappoint and that was the case with Mike.  

    Full Disclosure: I am an unpaid shill for every paranoid delusion that lurks under your bed - but more than willing to cash any checks sent my way
