A fixture of Portland, Maine radio and one of America's best friends died today.
More than 150,000 people will die today. Most of these deaths we will never learn about. But this morning when radio personality Casey Kasem passed away, almost instantly the news started showing up in my Twitter feed from The New York Times, The Wall St. Journal, The Portland Press Herald, and The Huffington Post. The news showed up in hundreds of posts and shares in my Facebook news feed. Cleary, Casey was one of America's best friends.
