BBC Newsreader (and more) Richard Baker will always be the voice of the news for me. When I read the news on the BBC, I hear it in his voice. He was 93. I was surprised by that. Guess I'm old too

Also, actor and magician Ricky Jay died on the 24th.

If you care anything about magic watch the documentary Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay. It's not a magic show. It's a show about Jay and other magicians. Very good.

No fish.

I couldn't agree more about the movie.

There is magic in it though. But it's not a magic show. Highest recommendation.

Ken Berry,

from Mayberry, RFD, as well as The Carol Burnett Show, F Troop, and Mama's Family shook his mortal coil December 1. He was 85.

Of all the George Bushes, H.W. was my favorite.

Funny, all I remember is the negative reporting condemning GHWB.

Apparently, the only good Republican is a dead (or turncoat) Republican to some people.

Yeah I thought he was deserving of criticism back in the day until I saw the types of Republicans who followed him. He's a fucking saint on comparison.

Politics aside, he was kinda a badass. Combat pilot, CIA director, vice pres, pres...

Like Putin.

Prime example of the Overton window. If your successors are bad enough, people will look back on you fondly.

Trump is the best thing to happen to Nixon's legacy since G.W. Bush.
