I don't think his religion will make him any less dead.

I believe the respawn time varies, though.

I used to listen to him on the radio back in the early 80's when I ran.

Hmm ...

King's birth name was Lawrence Harvey Zeiger.

His parents were Orthodox Jews who emigrated to the United States from Belarus in the 1930s.

After describing himself as a Jewish agnostic in 2005, King stated that he was fully atheist in 2015. In December 2011, King stated that he would like to be cryogenically preserved following his death. In 2017, he stated "I love being Jewish, am proud of my Jewishness, and I love Israel"

Yes, Larry King was Jewish, but even the Jews believe in God.

I do like one of his quotes, "You can't think and talk at the same time"


Quote:
Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.; January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.

Larry King was a man.

None of today's "interviewers" will ever touch his success because they're more focused on their own fame and starstruck by those they interview than they are on doing a great interview and actually asking good questions.

Thing I always liked about his show were the letters. He seemed to favor uncommon names and places and it used to give us a laugh.


Things like:


Pocahontas Shapiro, of New York Wisconsin writes...


or

Fun stuff!
