    Truly a classy gentleman who will be missed. They don't make 'em like him anymore.

    His son seems to be carrying on the tradition. I always loved his 'The Rest of the Story' tales.

    I remember hearing a Rest of the Story from Paul Harvey not too long ago..

    Chelsea Clinton questioned a military General about withdrawing from Iraq and noted all of the ribons on his uniform made her believe that he wasn't afraid of anything..

    The General replied: There are three things I'm afraid of in life:

    I'm afraid of Osama
    I'm afraid of Obama
    and I'm afraid of your momma

    I'm Paul Harveyyy..... GOOD DAY!

    He was truly a icon in our culture. The other day I heard him, while at work. He did sound not as himself. I wonder if it was the last one or close to it. I will always cherish the time we had spent together driving to and from work. He was a friend that was always there. I will miss him a great deal. His sons will do their best to fill in.. but non can or will ever replace the Great Paul Harvey! Never. Think now of what a great audience he has !

    Paul Harvey will now have the opportunity to tell his tales to the ones who have passed... they are very lucky.

    He was a true icon. I always looked forward to listening to him every day. While his stories usually didn't involve anything of great importance, I learned something new and interesting just about every time I listened to him.
