    I don't believe anyone picked Darrent Williams

    Carlo Ponti, dead at 94.

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/enter...tainment-celeb

    Ponti and Loren were married by proxy in Mexico in 1957 -- two male attorneys took their place and the happy couple only found out when the news was broken by society columnist Louella Parsons.

    The 2007 Death Pool polls have officially closed. If you're right about Mickey Rooney, Tommy Lassorda and Dick Clark kicking the bucket (in that order) you'll deeply impress us all with your psychic abilities but you won't be eligible to win any of the wonderful prizes. Nope, no all expenses paid seven-day vacation packages to Hackensack, NJ (at the Motel 6 featuring air conditioned rooms and color tv!) for you. And the 1997 Ford Taurus (with only 118,000 miles on it!), you guessed it - not eligible. Heck, you won't even qualify for the one year supply of Rice-a-Roni (the San Francisco treat)!

    Thank you for playing and tune in again this time next year!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Art Buchwald, reportedly gone to his great reward on this day.

    RIP, Art, you were one funny guy.

    That's sad to hear, he was pretty young. I remember his finisher "Greetings from Asbury Park". NJ has a rich history in wrestling and producing many late 80's superstars. RIP Bam Bam to the squared circle in the sky.

    Hey Bear I need an executive decision on this. Is it OK to report regional dead people or do they have to be nationally significant? I could report locally interesting dead people all day!

    Louis Malcolm Boyd was known as "Mal" to his friends in Seattle, where he wrote a daily column that was syndicated in 400 papers until he retired in December 2000.
    Hardly regional. Wake up and smell the coffee, young lady. Louie was great!
