Farewell Carl Kasell. All Wines Considered. Notes on a Wine Card

“From National Public Radio News in Washington, I’m Carl Kasell.” Those words were part of my mornings for so many years.  The other day, Carl Kasell passed away from complications of Alzheimer’s disease.  The former host of Morning Edition, Bob Edwards, would introduce Carl with a simple “The news is next.” Carl would then come on and give us the best 9 minutes of news on the radio.
