Rhode Island State Rock
Q: What’s Rhode Island’s state rock?
A: Doug White’s hair.
Doug’s hair always seemed unchanging, reliable, friendly and comforting, much like the personality he conveyed on the newscast.
It is with great and genuine sadness that I inform you that Doug White, long time WJAR Channel 10 news anchor has died.
Doug White, veteran Channel 10 anchor, dies at 61
Thanks for being part of our world, and for understanding that the hair joke was out of love.

Oh, that's sad. I remember him well long after I moved away from the Rhode Island area.
Oh man that sucks. 61 is way too young. As is 57, which is what Bruno Kirby was. You know Billy Crystal's sidekick from City Slickers. Bummer.
I shall miss having Doug White tell me what's going on in the world.
By the way, according to Bob's mom, she has a friend who either did his hair or knew his hairdresser, and that was really his hair. (I never understood why someone would choose to make his hair look like a toupee.)
No!! I really liked Doug White. :(
