And I thought they love Bacon!I recall Paul Harvey telling of a plan to destroy Islam.
It was elegant and simple. Not sure if it was his original idea... no it wasn't.
Was a story about Muslims protesting along a rail road. It was becoming a problem so the railroad greased the tracks with pork fat and the protesters dispersed.
Nvm... found it.
Paul Harvey on counter terrorism....
New documents show longtime friendship between J. Edgar Hoover and Paul Harvey / January 23, 2010 / http://tinyurl.com/ybkfswj
For the better part of six decades, Paul Harvey spun tales on the radio in his staccato baritone, entertaining up to 24 million listeners a day with folksy vignettes ending in unexpected twists.
And now, the rest of the story.
Previously confidential files show that Harvey, who died last February at 90, enjoyed a 20-year friendship with FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, often submitting advance copies of his radio script for comment and approval. Harvey wrote Hoover and his deputies regularly. Hoover, in turn, helped Harvey with research, suggested changes in scripts and showered the broadcaster with effusive praise.
But the real twist, suitable for one of Harvey's signature "Rest of the Story" vignettes, is how they met -- on opposite sides of an espionage investigation.
