Jay Thomas, dead at 69.

The headline that I clicked read "Cheers Favorite Jay Thomas Dies At 69"...

Jay Thomas (at the time appearing on Cheers as Carla's boyfriend/husband/whatever) that he had the hardest job in Hollywood, he had to kiss Rhea Perlman. They killed him off the show after that. His character was run over by A Zamboni. Yeah, I would call that being a favorite.

YouTube 'Jay Thomas Lone Ranger Story', though, you won't be disappointed. Very funny. There is more than one instance of him telling this story on Letterman, it's kind of a tradition.

Tobe Hooper, director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, died this past Saturday. He also adapted Salem's Lot into the 1979 mini-series. Didn't know that.

Half of country duo Montgomery Gentry, Troy Gentry, died in a helicopter crash on his way to a show. He was 50.

When will people learn, the only people who should be in helicopters should not be paying for it, they should be paid or drafted. :crone:

Author Jerry Pournelle has died. On Sept. 8th.

The only book of his I read was Footfall, written with Larry Niven, as were several other novels.

I was in a freedom-challenged period of my life.

That novel was a great escape.

Loved that novel. Intertwining stories and easter eggs for sci-fi enthusiasts. Everyone should know who the scientist with a head like a bullet and a razor mustache was.

Sorry to hear about Pournelle's passing.
