WOW! That's pretty impressive! I think most of those guys shorten their lives by taking steroids. My father used to flat LOVE "Pro wrasslin",and it was in truth the only  tv show I know  of that he was a fan of. Watched it without fail every Saturday night,and the Iron Sheik was a well-known "villian" in WCW wrasslin.

Pat Robertson, broadcaster who helped make religion central to GOP politics, dies at 93



--- Quote ---

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Pat Robertson, a religious broadcaster who turned a tiny Virginia station into the global Christian Broadcasting Network, tried a run for president and helped make religion central to Republican Party politics in America through his Christian Coalition, has died. He was 93.

Robertson’s death Thursday was announced by his broadcasting network. No cause was given.

Robertson’s enterprises also included Regent University, an evangelical Christian school in Virginia Beach; the American Center for Law and Justice, which defends the First Amendment rights of religious people; and Operation Blessing, an international humanitarian organization.
