    TV legend Dick Clark dies at age 82

    But Dick Clark? He never left. With his toothpaste-ad smile and a microphone always ready, Dick Clark was a fixture in our pop culture for decades.
    Maybe you hear his name and think New Year's Eve stalwart, or American Bandstand host, or "World's Oldest Teenager," a nickname he picked up from TV Guide years ago, but Dick Clark was much more than any of those single images.

    Dick Clark dead at 82

    (CBS/AP) Host and TV producer Dick Clark has died. He was 82. Spokesman Paul Shefrin said Clark had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John's hospital in Santa Monica, a day after he was admitted for an outpatient procedure.
    I wouldn't grieve, though. I believe he is getting ready to produce "Heaven Bandstand", and is going to have a great time up there.

    RIP, Dick.

    Looks like my reputation of posting breaking news stories seconds after someone else does is still intact. LOL.

    The end of an Era. As a starry-eyed prepubescent I watched American Bandstand, and wished I could be there. RIP.

    RIP

    The guy had a hell of a career. But to be honest, I'm glad I won't have to see the stroked-out remains of his former self on New Years this year.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yeah, poor guy, that was hard to watch. What a career though!
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    RIP Dick, you were always a class act and I enjoyed your shows.

    Once he was no longer able to get the secret formula youth cream from Johnny, his health rapidly went downhill.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
