I'm not even gonna quote that DWB. That's just wrong on every level.
I mainly knew Dick Clark as the host of the 'Pyramid' game shows (I'm a bit of a game show geek). Never really watched any of those New Year's shows, and Bandstand was before my time. He truly was the world's oldest teenager....until that stroke. He should have just retired from the public eye at that time.
(Memoriam is misspelled....sorry, but this kind of thing just irritates the crap out of me)
