His name will mean nothing to those of you on the other side of the village pond, and it probably won't mean much to the younger villagers over here, but Charles Wheeler was an absolutely outstanding journalist and broadcaster, a proper old-fashioned boots-on-the-ground reporter. In a world which has in it such enormously well-remunerated broadcasters as Rush Limbaugh, Wheeler was the real thing. Calm, humble, totally professional, the servant of the story rather than the subject of it as so many broadcast (and print) journalists seem to think they have to be these days. A proper journalist who did his very best work - and there was much of it - on the road rather than in the studio. A giant has passed, and it only compounds my sadness that so many these days don't follow his example.
