Pretty much every single homicidal maniac grew up without a dad. Quite the interesting story...

Thank-you Jim for all the years of entertainment, (I'm about to date myself, enjoyed your role as Gomer Pyle from the Andy Griffith Show). My condolences to your Family and Friends, rest in peace.

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

One that I've got money on in my ghoul pool to perish in 2018 is the the original Gerber baby.
She's 90 years old now.
I've got 50 on her at 4 1/2 to 1.

Is it okay to have friends on all sides of the political spectrum? Or do I have to choose?

The Canadian Injustice System. Letting victims know that they don't matter with every ruling.

LOS ANGELES—Rose Marie, the wisecracking Sally Rogers of The Dick Van Dyke Show and a show business lifer who began as a bobbed-hair child star in vaudeville and worked for nearly a century in theatre, radio, TV and movies, died Thursday. She was 94.

Marie had been resting in bed at her Los Angeles-area home when a caretaker found she had stopped breathing, said family spokesman Harlan Boll.

“Heaven just got a whole lot funnier” was the tribute posted atop a photo of Marie on her website.

She was a child star of the 1920s and 1930s who endeared herself to TV fans on the classic ‘60s sitcom that featured Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore.

The subject of the 2017 documentary Wait for Your Laugh, Marie often claimed she had the longest career in entertainment history. It spanned some 90 years, with co-stars ranging from W.C. Fields to Garfield the cat, and the highlight for many was The Dick Van Dyke Show.

LOS ANGELES—Sue Grafton, author of the bestselling “alphabet series” of mystery novels, has died in Santa Barbara. She was 77.

Grafton was surrounded by family, including husband Steven Humphrey, when she died Thursday after a two-year battle with cancer, her daughter, Jamie Clark, posted on the author’s website.

“Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things moved quickly,” the posting said.

Oh no! Will "Z" ever get written?!
I really liked "Y is for Yesterday". I thought it was one of her best.
So sorry for her family.
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

Her daughter says the alphabet ends at "Y". Sad loss.
