A toast to Ron Smith

It is two years years ago today that legendary WBAL radio host Ron Smith died of pancreatic cancer. Ron's reach and impact as the "Voice of Reason" went far, but so do the efforts of his friends and family to fund research aimed at detecting pancreatic cancer at an earlier, treatable stage.

On his blog, WBAL's Rob Lang notes the efforts of Ron's wife, June, and the Friends of Ron Smith charity. They're funding the manpower necessary to complete studies of better anti-cancer tools. I raise a toast to them and Ron on this anniversary date. Ron, we miss you on our drive-time commute, and we thank you for this long-lasting legacy.
