A Paul Sullivan memory

Much has been written about the untimely death of Paul Sullivan, pretty much all of it by people who knew him way, way better than I did.

Still, one quick anecdote. I appeared on Sullivan's WBZ show precisely once, to talk about Don Imus's ouster from CBS. As we chatted during a commercial break, I happened to mention that my father-in-law was in town from Florida to get cancer treatment at MGH--the same place Sullivan himself was getting care.

Sullivan promtply wrote his phone number on a scrap of paper, gave it to me, and told me to give it to my father-in-law. Have him give me a call, Sullivan said. We'll grab lunch.

I don't think my father-in-law took him up on the offer, but I'm still struck by how quickly and naturally Sullivan made it. Clearly, he was just a really nice guy. My condolences to Paul's family.
