Thursday, December 7, 2017Walt was a great inspiration to me even before I was fortunate enough to call him a colleague at WCBS radio. He taught me a great deal and I always loved his wonderful and sharp wit. My condolences to his family and friends.

Wednesday, December 6, 2017I hate this. Walt got me to the North Pole when he took me along to Greenland to be trained for surviving on the ice if your C-130 skibird crashed.I still remember when we all spent the first night under a hastily built paratent just to cut the wind, so to speak, there was Walt sleeping outside on the ice in his sleeping bag as if he didn't have a care in the world. Even our trainers from Elmendorf were amazed. After that we took that 130 and hopped up to the Pole, a weather station at 86 north and one of our radar stations to catch Russian missiles coming over the Pole. Because I went on that craziness, the NSF and the Air Guard Walt worked with took me to the South Pole too.All because Walt suggested I freeze my ass off when we were at Art Athens' retirement party at Gracie Mansion. He took me on some of the best adventures of my life and I will always be grateful for his friendship and honored to have been his colleague.
