Evel Knievel: Pop Culture Icon Dies

It just does not seem right, Motorcycle Daredevil Evel Knievel meeting a peaceful death, but it happened in Clearwater, Florida. I remember him trying to jump the Snake River Canyon in 1974, the day President Ford pardoned Richard Nixon. Knievel was mentioned in Pat O'Day's recent biography and had strong Northwest connections. He formerly owned a motorcycle shop in Moses Lake.
