We're sad to report actress Elizabeth Peña, perhaps best known for 'Jacob's Ladder', 'La Bamba', and 'The Incredibles' has passed away at age 55. Rest in peace. http://imdb.to/1w9enAq

Only last week or so I read an article where she said she was stopping treatment and hoped to die peacefully in January, so I'm kind of shocked it happened so soon

Now I'll have to rething my 2015 pool list....



I saw an article asking people if the thought ebola or ISIS was the bigger threat to America. It pointed out that statistically they should be more worried about cancer. (and moving large furniture)

Cure Cancer. (I'm sick of the "Fuck Cancer" thing)

This morning, the Washington Post gave him the front page above the fold and like 7-8 pages in the A section. I wonder how many they gave US Presidents when they died? Can't remember.

Reminds me of when I was on yearbook staff in high school, I was able to get photos of all my siblings into the yearbook, while the year before, when I wasn't on the staff, none of us were in there.

Bradlee bows out

We are all flawed...

Quote:
The late Ben Bradlee, editor of The Washington Post during Watergate, is called “the least dull figure in the history of postwar journalism” in a personal obituary by David Remnick in The New Yorker. Bradlee, who Remnick says was an “expert in the art of florid dismissal”, liked to dictate his correspondence into a recorder but his secretary struggled with his industrial language. On one occasion she had to go and ask the advice of the custodian of the paper’s style guide: “Is ‘dickhead’ one word or two?”

Maybe his album I bought in 1962 will be worth something.

Tom Magliozzi

Tom Magliozzi, Popular Co-Host Of NPR's 'Car Talk,' Dies At 77

I always listened to Car Talk on my trips to the US and subsequently on the Internet.

The great thing about about that programme was that you didn't have to have any interest in cars in order to enjoy it. The infectious laughter and banter was what made it.

RIP Old chap.
