Art Bell's wife has passed on

Art Bell's wife died in her sleep from an asthma attack. I'm surprised to see that her death is already noted on Wikipedia.

I'm sad for Art. His radio talk show is real entertaining. It comes on at about 11:00pm. If you have nothing to do, it's a good listen. He has interviews and conversations on the topic of UFOs and aliens and paranormal occurences, but Art is so down to earth, so respectful to his callers, that sometimes you wonder, could some of what you're hearing be true? Depends on the caller. Some are complete utter wackos and some, might be one cookie short of a dozen, or might not. Yet no matter how outrageous the call, Art is never condescending. Good late night entertainment. Such success he has had with his show, that he now broadcasts straight from home in Pahrump. He lives in Pahrump, Nevada. Pah-what? Pahrump.

Pahrump, Nevada got its name from the Southern Paiute "pah" meaning water and "rimpi" meaning rock. One who lives in Pahrump is called a 'Pahrumpian.' Tell me you don't have to have a sense of humor to live in a place called Pahrump!
