    What a long and rich life. Not as good a Tom Snyder but not bad at all.

    Didn’t my man have like 7 or 8 wives? He wasn’t playing around. Loved that guy.

    From a political perspective I think of Ross Perot when I think of King. This was back pre internet days of course and my recollection is Perot’s candidacy really grew because of his appearances on King’s shows. (I was younger then so anyone is free to correct me if that’s wrong)

    That sounds about right.

    RIP Mr. King.

    Another great one is gone. What a legacy.

    "Old age" is not a cause of death.

    Larry King had many health problems over the years, but he survived them all, and keep working. Covid-19 finally brought him down.

    Old age itself does not kill people. Over time our bodies weaken, but then something kills us.
