"Bell is scheduled for an autopsy later this week to determine the cause of death." Mr. Bell, when would you like your autopsy performed? Anyone want to bet on the over-under on when the conspiracy theories on his death start?

We got into many, many "his guest and callers are full of shit, but these are great topics" discussions while working midnights at Cannon. He also kept me hooked into civilian disaster prep on an E-3 budget. Not by buying the stuff he hawked, but his discussions kept my interest up and I kept my 90-day TDY bag supplemented with a primitive bug-out bag for tornadoes, road trips into the mountains, etc.
