Larry King, dead at 87.

Watched him for a while. Always entertaining.

Hard to beat him as an interviewer. Granted, some said he softballed his questions, but he could get anyone to talk about anything just by being friendly.

Had been hospitalised with COVID-19

I guess at that age, any number of things will get you
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station.

If you are seeing an apparent paradox, that means you are missing something.

Exactly - get them to feel comfortable and not combative and you can slip whatever you want in and get an answer.
