    RIP Mr. King.

    Hopefuly this doesn't sound too callous - every death is a tragedy for those left behind, but when someone is in the high 80s or older, my natural inclination is to think "congratulations, you won at living". Everybody will die someday, King squeezed more out of living than most.

    Conversely, I'm sure Fatty thinks Larry King is a hoax and he never existed - liburalz running the very long con.

    As a kid I used to listen to him and Rush Limbaugh as I fell asleep. Yeah, I know -- weird, but I got a taste of "both sides". I always loved his ability to interview people. He's a legend and is one of the last true journalist/interviewers in the truest sense.

    I'll never forget the one caller who always kept crank-calling his radio show and just said "Larry, the water is warm". lol. Larry would usually end pointless callers or callers he disagreed with a "rest well" and move onto the next caller.

    BTW, there's a 1991'ish interview where he interviews Hank Aaron on YouTube. Little did they know they'd pass away so close in time.
