They Took Our Jobs

Dear Steve: Thanks for putting my record collection in my pocket and for generally being the Willy Wonka of home computing. You realized the impossible. You made computers objects of social status. You helped to legitimize nerd culture. You also helped to legitimize black turtle necks in a way unseen since Ric Ocasek’s cameo in Hairspray. Please know the world has been collectively muttering one of “South Park’s” most popular quotes in quiet shock since you passed yesterday. Peace out, JG2.
