BYE BYE LARRY KING

Well, tonight is a sad night because Larry King's TV show is finally ending after what seems to be forever and a day on the air on CNN. A lot of tributes are pouring in, although I also see quite a few of the usual pieces by these mean-spirited people who are pointing to the declining ratings and trashing Larry for his softball-interview style of questioning over the years. Look, that was his style, take it or leave it. And the truth is that you can get a lot out of a guest by just being relaxed and asking questions. Why people feel the need for every TV interview to be some sort of hatchet job, I don't know. Maybe I'm sympathetic because it isn't my style to do that, either. Anyhow, tonight is the end for Larry and the end of an era at CNN.
