Radio Legend George Putnam Dies

Talk about longevity. George Putnam was in broadcasting for over 70 years! I'll just be happy to live that long. One of the last conservative Democrats, Putnam often said, like Reagan, that he didn't leave the Democrat Party, it left him. And a little known fact, he was the inspiration for Ted Knight's portrayal of Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Michelle Malkin has a tribute.
