Paul Harvey, RIP

"The rest of the story" has finally reached its conclusion. Dead at 90.

When I was a kid listening to him I always thought he was talking to me and everyone else was eavesdropping on his conversation.

Ron Chapman, a very popular Dallas radio personality had been filling in for Paul as best he could but he said almost every day that he could never replace Paul.

There will never be another like him. He will be sorely missed.

I listened to him every morning on our local talk radio news channel. His son has been doing some bits now, but unfortunately, he just doesn't have it like his pop. I will miss the guy

In my 10th grade Civics class (do they even teach "Civics" these days? doubtful) we listen to him during class.
