Watched him for years with such dedication and admiration. He was my greatest mentor who opened doors enlightening my world. Has he been spread too thin or perhaps it is a problem with the producers not lining up better interviews? But, more times than naught, I have to change the channel. I think, at times, even he is bored with the hyperbole expressed by his artist or fictional writer guests. If anyone is amused by this rhetoric, it would amaze me. There is nothing they contribute to my intellect or interest. Or, perhaps he has at last, let his simple minded morning co-host Gail, a bleak match up, wear off on him. Charlie, please get back on tract, I miss you.
