Since far too often we only publicly say nice things about people when they are dead I’ve decided to randomly pick a Facebook friend every day and say something nice about them.

Today’s person: Jim LeBrecht!
I met Jim when I was an apprentice at Berkeley Rep, and he was the Nice Guy Sound Designer. Not that there weren’t other nice people, but Jim was and is so genuine in his niceness, so effortlessly kind it’s like he’s insane or something. The world is being strangled by money-market maniacs, boiled alive by sadistic clusterfuckery, but Jim always has a cool balance of righteous yet joyful indignation. He’s not squishy nice, he’s revolutionary Santa - a generous smile, an infectious laugh, and as a gift he gives warm insights and cheerful advocacy that make the everything seem better, and the even better than that seem possible.
