Default Carl Kasell has left the building

I've been an NPR junky for a long time, and it is with great sadness that I pass along the news that retired newscaster Carl Kasell has passed away. For a long time, I would wake up to his headlines on Morning Edition, and I greatly enjoyed his involvement with the program "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me". I got to see him one year when our local public radio station brought him in for a gala - he was warm, charming and extremely funny. He will be missed.

Hint #1: Do not use magician's flash paper for recovery wadding!

Hint #2: Clean your shoes after flyin' in that cow pasture - that ain't no dirt clod on the sole!

A real bummer, but he did have a really long career as a newsman, and a fun second act as Wait Wait's announcer.

Sorry to hear he had Alzheimer's; a rotten disease.
