Paul Harvey, the great Paul Harvey, has died.
I will forever associate that comforting, unmistakable voice with first grade. Because every day at lunchtime, we would get out our lunches, and the teacher would get out the radio, tuning each noon to "The Rest of the Story."
Surprisingly, even at that age we got the appeal of Paul Harvey and realized he was something special. Not surprisingly, our teacher never had to tell us to pipe down and eat our lunches. That was probably his plan all along, come to think of it, but I surely thank him for it now.
Godspeed, Paul. We'll see you when we get there.
