Regardless what you think of politics of any stripe, Alzheimers is the worst disease I know.

Rest in Peace, Dave Barrett. Quite frankly given what I know how bad this disease can get, we treat animals better than people.

Vic Damone, whose mellow baritone once earned praise from Frank Sinatra as "the best pipes in the business," has died in Florida at the age of 89, his daughter said.

Victoria Damone told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday that her father died Sunday at a Miami Beach hospital from complications of a respiratory illness.

Damone's easy-listening romantic ballads brought him million-selling records and sustained a half-century career in recordings, movies and nightclub and concert and television appearances.
