I genuinely liked the guy, I liked listening to his talk show. One of the best stories he told was about he and his brother going into the WT Grant's store in Atlanta with their mom in the 1950s, and telling her they wanted to go look at the pet birds. They went to the back of the store and near the pet dept. was a water fountain, segregated. They looked around and nobody was watching so his brother drank from the "Whites only" fountain, he said, how'd it taste? And his brother said, really good! So he took a drink too.

He survived stage four intestinal cancer; when he was diagnosed, much like my old man, they told him to just make peace with his life and they'd put him on palliative care, but he said no, we're going to treat this. So they did, and he lived for many many years more...

Go easy, Mr. Cain.
