Larry King is a legend of television journalism and is recognized in Washington D.C. to Beijing and everywhere in between. Now that his iconic show is five years behind him and the end nears, he has begin to speak about how he feels about life, death, and what still fascinates him. In this absorbing New York Times profile, King ranges free on subjects such as how he keeps himself going after 80 (routine is a big part) and who he wants to speak at his funeral (Bill Clinton among others). For anyone interested about the thoughts of a man who helped shape public opinion for decades this is certainly a must, and engrossing, read.
