Don Kent, RIP

Don Kent, the man who practically invented weather on TV, has died. Another one of those icons from my childhood. We boomers all grew up with Don Kent.

Of the many whiz-bang gadgets of my youth -- who can ever forget the push-button telephones at the Boston Museum of Science -- was a window display at the old Worcester North Institution for Savings in Moran Square in Fitchburg. It featured Don Kent weather instruments.
