George Michael (1939–2009). Back in the 1980s, Washington’s WRC had the local newscast to watch, and Michael was one of the main reasons. The rest of the country knew his Sports Machine (with one working button), but if you were in D.C. at the time, he was the guy to go to for entertaining sports and nonsense. Like all showmen, he had more than a little ridiculousness in his schtick, but he made it work up until a couple years ago when he quit the business rather than cut his staff’s salaries. May he rest in peace.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
