Oral Roberts, dead at 91 (usatoday.com)

Love him or hate him, he started the televangelist movement. I never cared for TV preachers, but I found him to be the least...I dunno, scummy? He seemed more authentic.

He dealt with a lot of tragedy in his life, losing two kids (one by plane crash and one by suicide) but he enjoyed a long life and a long marriage.

I don't know. Compared to Billy Graham, he was a little scummy. Compared to Jimmy Swaggart, a saint.

It's catchy, it has a beat and the media can dance to it, that's all. Besides, it's not like it requires a great deal of explanation to anyone with an IQ bigger than their shoe size. It's a golden rule of Newspaper/Television Reporting:
