    Time for Beth to break out her smart girl glasses. She and Howard have another celebrity funeral to attend.

    Whenever I hear his name, I hear Artie dismissively saying, "Whatever Morely..."

    Wish I could remember the context he said it in.

    The 60 minutes special on him this past weekend was really nice. It's no surprise that he died. He probably knew he was terminal.

    Dude was a great second or third fiddle and he made a great career out of it. He was never the best or the star of 60 Minutes, but he did his job well and should be admired for what he did. RIP.

    Always liked him. RIP.

    So I think only Dan Rather is left now from the original cast.

    When I retire, I hope my retirement lasts a little longer than his.
