Adios, Maestro – ya no hay más

November 27, 2006

Mexican variety show host Raúl Velasco has died, appropriately enough, on Sunday, at age 73.

When I was a freshman in high school and teaching myself Spanish, his Siempre en Domingo helped me tanto, tanto, tanto.

On camera, he was a warm, human, humble man, never slick, never cheesy.  Kind of like an uncle or your Dad.

Gracias por todo, Profe.  Que en paz descanses.
