Paul Harvey, media icon

This blog comes to life at the same time as the death of an American communications icon. Paul Harvey has died.

I am saddened. Another American Voice/Voice of America has been taken from us. His dulcet tones invoking “the rest of the story” ring in my ears. He was an innovative pioneer of what in retrospect presages the blog – as podcast, but broadcast over the radio airwaves, the established media of the day. Politically I might not always have concurred with his thinking, but his manner of presentation, his style, his ability to succinctly communicate ideas needs to be studied and emulated.
