Back roads

The everyday kindness of back roads
more than makes up for the acts of greed
in the headlines.
Charles Kuralt

If you read Easy Street, you know that I love the CBS Sunday Morning News.  My mom got me started on the show back when Charles Kuralt was the host.  I loved his folksy delivery.  I was quite disappointed when his double life came out after his death.

Charles Osgood was a good replacement choice.  I heard him speak at the National English Teacher's conference quite a few years ago.  I love his sense of humor and his rhymes.  I love his delivery on CBS Sunday Morning.  And I especially love that he sings and plays the piano once in awhile.  And on the New Years show this last year--he played and sang "Auld Lang Syne."  Yes, I love Charles Osgood, too!
