HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Hubert "Hub" Schlafly, a key member of the team that invented the teleprompter and rescued decades' worth of soap opera actors, newscasters and politicians from the embarrassment of stumbling over their words on live television, has died. He was 91.

Schlafly died April 20 at Stamford Hospital after a brief illness, according the Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, which handled the arrangements.

So I wonder if this guy has remorse or jubilation as a result of his creation of Barack Obama.

Thanks Free ThinkerNY...first time I saw the article!

I hope this guy was very very wealthy...his contribution to politicians, preachers and other ne'er do wells should have made him buckets full of money.

Is Barry going to the funeral? He could give the eulogy on a “teleprompter”.

I wonder if Schlafly ever dreamed
that someday his teleprompter would
become President of the United States?
