My COMM 320 professor at Penn State, Wayne Hilinski died over the winter; his obituary appeared yesterday in the CDT/Legacy.com. I took his advertising class, but mostly remember him from sitting out in front of Carnegie Building chatting and having fun with the journalism vs. advertising rivalry. For being on the “other side” he was a good guy. I even bought him a round at the Allen Street Grill once after graduation which he was quite grateful for at the time.

Hilinski, 72, was a veteran of the Cola Wars
