“And here’s the other thing about Bob Randisi: yes, his career’s long, and distinguished, and bountiful. But in my opinion — not humble, but in this case, informed — what’s really special about Bob, and the reason he deserves every honor we can give him, is how much he’s done for the rest of us.”
— S.J. Rozan
