    Ooh, I hate the author thing. So many of my favorites are really old. Well, compared to me, compared to most Cybs they would be already dead and gone. It's so sad when a great author is gone and will never write again.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I saw a quote from Florence/Marla Gibbs about Sherman Hemsley's death; is she the only one left from the regular cast? Maybe Lionel is still out there?
