Star Hustler

Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium.

Some people hustle pool,
Some people hustle cars,
But have you ever heard about
The man who hustles stars?

I don’t stay up as late as I used to, but when I was a teenager, I watched Jack Horkheimer regularly and planned my week’s nightly sky observations accordingly. Always presented with his trademark panache, his passion for astronomy was infectious. He will be missed.
