Paul Harvey, R.I.P.

Decades before Rush Limbaugh's career took off, there was another conservative radio voice broadcasting heartland conservative values to Americans looking for the rest of the story.

The Chicago-based broadcaster died today at his winter home in Phoenix at the age of 90.

To use one of Harvey's favorite phrases...."It's true."

It's also sad, but the Oklahoma native had a full and productive life.

One of the ironies of Harvey's death is that just a block away from the stretch of Wacker Drive that was renamed in his honor, the hometown edition of the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party took place.

It's true.

In a way, Paul Harvey was at that party.

Rest in peace.
