    to do a story on 60 minutes regarding.....Scores?







    Robin's News. 02/17/15. 10:20am



    Robin said Bob Simon the CBS news man was killed in a crazy accident in Manhattan. Robin said that she's not sure how you get a car mangled like that in the city. Howard said his only connection to Bob Simon is that he was calling his agent repeatedly trying to get in touch with him. Howard said he's not making this up like Brian Williams. Howard said this is true. He said they were doing a story on Scores and they were looking for him to participate. Howard said the answer couldn't have been no fast enough. Howard said that was his only contact with him. He said that his agent had been speaking to him for a while. Howard said they say that Bob wasn't wearing his seat belt in the back of the car. Robin said she's still not sure how you get that out of control in the city. Howard said he read some things about the guy that were kind of disturbing. Gary said the guy had lost his license and may have tired to kill himself in the past year. Robin had some audio of Bob Simon's voice and said it's very recognizable. Robin said he was 73 and still working.

    Howard was actually just sitting down to write to him when he heard the bad news. He felt harrible that he did not get the letter to him in time. The heart of gold on Howard is amazing. He would be a great option to do his euology.

    I heard he wanted to punch Howard in the vag for talking him into buying 5,000 shares of SIRIUS stock.

    I caught a glimpse of it and you're wrong. Howard's name was in it.

    This was in his planner for the next business day.

    as he was sitting down to write Robin Williams on the day he committed suicide, Howard was also sitting down that evening to pen a letter to Bob Simon literally at the same time he got into the accident
