    Ralph Edwards, host of "Truth or Consequences," and "This is Your Life," on radio and TV, has died at the age of 92. His passing comes at a time when the town of Clark, Texas agreed to change its name to "Dish," as a promotional gimmick for Echostar.
    In the late 1940's, the town of Hot Springs, New Mexico changed its name to "Truth of Consequences, after a "challenge" from Edwards on the radio version of "T or C."
    There is also a report that "This is Your Life," will be revived next year. What goes around comes around but there will never be another as great as Ralph Edwards.
