Good day Paul Harvey

Those of you who are over 40 have probably heard several stories on the radio by Mr. Paul Harvey.  Paul Harvey died yesterday at the ripe old age of 90.  I was a fan. Not that I always knew when his show was, but when I was cruiising the stations I knew Paul; had something of substance to share.  He would share a story about a person and human character that would make me think or smile.  He reported teh news to some degree, but he really found the unusaul story and gave it legs.  He shared interesting tidbits about well known people that revealed to some degree why they were the way they are.  His stories were wholesome, inspiring, interesting and funny.  He created a whole new way of speaking on the radio. I remember on more than one occassion being so wrapped up in his story that I had arrived at my destination but remained in my car just the hear....the rest of the story.  Rest in peace my good man. And thanks for the hundreds and probably thousands of stories.
