USA TEXAS CORPUS CHRISTI 22 October 2006
I had the pleasure of working with Pye on the Hill. He was on the Senate side; I was on the House. Others who knew him longer and better have eloquently commented on this sad day.
During one of the election night stints, I photographed Pye in Studio A with Howard. That is what I prefer to share.
I wish I could have known him better; I wish we could have been better friends.
He was one of a diminishing number of unique broadcasters and he was a character-- the kind of creative misfit this business used to not only acquire, but encourage. Sadly, today he probably would be rebuffed. Pye was, thank God, not the type to fit into a journalistic world gone corporate -- and all of us, and those who never knew him, are poorer for that.
