    RIP: Casey Kasem has passied

    News from The Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Casey Kasem, the internationally famous radio host with the cheerful manner and gentle voice who became the king of the top 40 countdown with a syndicated show that ran for decades, died Sunday. He was 82.
    Danny Deraney, publicist for Kasem's daughter, Kerri, says Kasem died Sunday morning. A statement issued by the family says he died at 3:23 a.m. on Father's Day morning surrounded by family and friends at a Washington state hospital.
    As a kid I always thought he had a great voice on the radio.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Man, I'm really sorry to hear that. He was a big thing at one time, a real American institution.

    You can usually find a political connection in anything.

    As for Kasem, he was a prominent spokesmen for Arab-American acceptance. Pre-9/11 there wasn't much of an cause to advocate but I do remember him coming to my city as part of an Americans of Arab heritage panel and to endorse one of our candidates for mayor who was also of Arab heritage.

    As an FYI I think his roots were Lebanese who are significantly if not majority Christian making them different than most Arabs both in Lebanon and immigrants and their defendants here.

    Longtime host of American Top 40. Network image voice for NBC, the guy who says "tonight at 8, 7 central on NBC." Voice of Shaggy on the Scooby Doo cartoons.

    RIP Kasey - very sad.

    The events surrounding his death are just diabolically tragic.

    Well the show debut about 19 years before I was born, but I still watched it when I was younger.

    Some people have other interests in life besides politics.

    Some people have a regular life.
