    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    Wow, I didn't realize that he had done so much during his lifetime. Kind of the Forrest Gump of the literary set.

    With the deaths of the well known people lately, this should inspire someone to make a new thread to predict who will die next. I would, but I can't think of anybody who may be near their deathbed. Is Ronald Reagan dead yet?

    This has been a really bad couple of weeks.

    I just saw George at the opening of a Lions game with Alex Karras.

    Geez what's with all these famous people dying? Is it the drinking water? Is it sprawl? Global warming? Some psycho that's killing old famous stars a-la Jack Kevorkian?
