Paul Harvey – RIP

The Core Belief

A quick note, this snowy first day in March:

Paul Harvey died at age 90 on 2/28/09.  Perhaps there are those of you who never hard him or never cared for his oddly accented editorials.  Whatever.

As I went through many exanimations I the late 1970’s and early 1980’s to prove that the chronic right side belt line pain I was experiencing was appendicitis, my mother had Paul Harvey’s ‘The Rest of the Story’ playing on WJR-AM radio.  I found his voice soothing as I turned green, waiting for another spasm to subside.

His passing has been noted by many a media outlet.  However, even though I haven’t heard his voice over the airwaves in nearly 30 years, I will always remember the comfort he gave me in my occasionally sickened youth.


My appendix was taken out in 1982 and the pain ceased.

Now, you know the rest of the story
