His Death Reminds Us of Better Times

Not so long ago, there was a time in this country when people treated one another with respect. Unlike today, most Americans communicated without the need to use profanity and vulgarity. Men and women behaved like gentlemen and ladies and took pride in doing so and in teaching their children proper behavior. Among others, Willard Scott represented that time with a gentility that seems all but lost. So, today, we mourn the passing of Mr. Scott just as we mourn that time when people were civil to one another.


“Willard Scott, the beloved weatherman who charmed viewers of NBC’s “Today” show with his self-deprecating humor and cheerful personality, has died. He was 87,” according to The Washington Times.

“His successor on the morning news show, Al Roker, announced that Scott died peacefully Saturday morning surrounded by family. An NBC Universal spokeswoman confirmed the news. No further details were released… [emphasis added]

Scott began his 65-year career at NBC as an entry-level page at an affiliate station in Washington, D.C., and rose to become the weather forecaster on the network’s flagship morning show for more than three decades. His trademark was giving on-air congratulations to viewers who turned 100 years old.” [emphasis added]
