I used to listen to Paul Harvey every day too on AM radio. I didn't hear him since the middle of the 1990s after he left for a while because of throat surgery. I used to fly model airplanes and didn't know that he did too until I read your little article. Nice job of writing the one about Samuel Morse in the style of Paul Harvey. I could just hear Paul's voice in my head as I read it. Doesn't his son do some of that stuff like his father used to do? I think I heard him a couple times - sounds a little like Paul but it's just not the same. Anyway I figured I'd let you know here on the blog since it doesn't seem to be getting much use these days. Any guess why not?

Greetings Amplifier:

I'm not sure why forum participation has dropped off so much, but my guess is that it has a lot to do with the social networking sites like FaceBook. Still, other sites seem to get a fair amount of dialog in their comments area, so who knows? Maybe once I've said something, there's nothing else left to be said about it. :-D
