The One-Week-Late RIP Huell Howser Post

I would have posted this right after the news broke about the passing of the World's Oldest Toddler, but I was a bit held up last Monday. So here it goes.

For those who don't live in California, Mr. Howser was the host of over a half-dozen travel shows on public TV out here. So what?

Here's what: he was comically consumed by the most tedious aspects of every "journey" he took (see any of Adam Carolla's podcasts with Dana Gould), genuinely enthused about any tourist trap, sand pit, and park bench he came across, and there will never be another like him. He sucked you in with his child-like wonder. Often impersonated, never imitated, he truly loved the state he adopted and made his home, and it won't be the same without him.

R.I.P., and may the clouds be amazing.

Every possible example of his excitement to follow.
