I didn’t realize that I had formed an attachment, or even a cognitive association, with KTLA news anchor Hal Fishman, until I learned that he died today, at the age of 75. Hal was diagnosed with colon cancer less than a week ago, after it had already spread to his liver. I suppose his passing this quickly is a good thing, as it might have eased his suffering.
Good night Hal. Thanks for so many years of your comforting face softening the blow of the nightly news. You will be missed.
