So he looks and sounds like had a stroke

OK, Dick Clark is rough, but only as rough as any stroke victim looks. They cloistered him in a little box indoors, but they should have let Dick breathe in the cold, brisk air with his people. Way to go, Dick and his handlers - way to add stigma to disease and infirmity. If they gave the reins over to Seacrest for any reason other than Dick's arduous effort taking a toll on his stamina, then they should be ashamed of themselves.

And, frankly, I was convinced Mariah would only perform in something less than a bikini, which is why I was skeptical about an open-air medley in Times Square.

Why do I feel protective of Dick Clark?
