2. Yep, we're getting old.

Joel was a icon in Chicago. I grew up with him on our little tv.

3. Yes

I was little and remember Joel and Fahey Flynn and thought "adults blah blah". As I aged I remember Joel from before his retirement and thought "what an exceptional human being" with his humor and his side activities. I do miss him.

4. Remember Fahey's Bow Tie?

He was the first TV news guy I remember wearing one.
PJ Hoff, the famed weatherman wore one occasionally, but it was a sort of trademark for Fahey.
Those were the earliest days of me actually watching the news.

5. Yes, I remember the Bow tie

I also remember as a 9 to 13 year old thinking these adults were sooo boring. Now I wish we had sane adults on TV news. (local broadcasts)
