The rest of the story...

"Time now for NEWS!"
Paul Harvey, the ABC Radio Network news commentator has died.

My first recollection of hearing his distinctive voice and interesting way of delivering the news was during our family's trek across country in 1971. Since then, if I've ever come across his report on the radio I have always listened in. He was simply entertaining and seemed to embody the values that made our country great.

His era is gone. Too bad.

Every day he would come on at 12 noon on a Washington AM radio station. My mom had that station on all day in the kitchen so I always heard "The rest of the story" at lunch time. I was probably a newborn when I first heard him!

That was before TVs, right?
