    Was listening to Chris Havel's show on the way home from work. He ran this little gem during his show, and keep in mind that Paul Harvey was 'big stuff' back in the day:

    Thanks for calling the anniversary date to our attention. Lombardi was only 56 and had many more years of coaching ahead of him, had he lived. Of course, it would have been in Washington but it would have been interesting to see how he would have done with another decade or more to work in.

    Thanks for that, weeds. Not only for the remembrance of Lombardi but for Paul Harvey too.

    Listening to this made my day. Miss hearing "the rest of the story" too.

    My perfect day would be Paul Harvey giving me a story of enlightenment in the morning and listening to audio of poetry recited by the one and only Charles Kuralt at evening.
