    Well, I always admire people who does things I could never do or acieve. Dick Clark was one of those.
    Tes, he wasn’t a saint, but he provided music & entertainment on TV and radio.
    He opened the window to Rock N Roll on prime time TV, even when Rock N Roll was seeing as evil for the youth.
    He also give equal opportunity on his show to colored artists when it was so difficult for them to get on TV.
    A giant.
    He will be missed.
