Larry King Thinks God Is From Brooklyn

Wife Shawn Southwick, King, Cannon, Chase

Larry King celebrates 50 years of broadcasting this week. Here’s a great e-mail interview, via USA Today:

Q: Are you going to retire someday?

A: Retire to what? I wouldn’t know what to do with retirement. I love what I do. I still feel just as good. I still like it when the light goes on. I still love meeting people. My curiosity remains endless. And I figure the more I work, the more I push off that big Brooklyn guy in the sky from making the grab.

Also, for the record, how many marriages and kids? “Six marriages. My children are Andy, who is 50; Larry Jr., 45; Chaia, 39; Chance, 8; and Cannon, 6.”
