Oh, there is one more that matters the most to me and my family. Our dear, gentle 16-year-old "puppy." In all the years she was with us, she managed to bring out the best in everyone she met. She was a natural clown, sweetheart and most of all, accepting of everyone even if they didn't have a bite of bacon, for her.

It's always good to reflect on those who've passed and made a difference in the lives of others. For me, it makes me strive to actually do things that matter.

Janet Reno is reading politically correct stories to children in hell.

MZ sez, "Dr. Denton Cooley (first successful heart transplant in US"

False: not first susccessful heart transplant- first artificial heart.

Even though she's dead, I wonder if Janet Reno still has the shakes? And I wonder if David Koresh is on the welcoming committee in Hell?

I hate the Eagles

But that would make you a douche, no?

11:53: No, Mz is correct. From the texasheart.org site:

A world-renowned surgeon, he has pioneered many techniques used in cardiovascular surgery. He performed the first successful human heart transplant in the United States in 1968. In 1969, he became the first heart surgeon to implant an artificial heart in man.

No, that makes you a douche for not accepting the fact that everybody doesn't like the same shit.

I like the Eagles but still believe you are a douche, see how that works?

Thanks Mcchief for mentioning Leonard Cohen. Around this time every year I think about his song "Suzanne" when the bell ringers for the Salvation Army start their fund raising. I have to go online and look at a picture of Suzanne Verdal who inspired Cohen to write that song that included the words "She is wearing rags and feathers from Salvation Army counters". The last I read she was living in a homemade camper on the back of a pickup.

This may seem like a lot of celebrity death, but now that the explosion of TV fame and recognition of so many people from the 60s and 70s (much larger than anytime preceding it on earth), we will see every year as an "unbelievable" amount of celebrity death as the TV stars and early rock musicians begin to die off from the 60s & 70s. We still have 2 Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan,George HW Bush, 2 of 3 Dog Night, Al Green, Partridge Family... all of that to die off in the next 10 years. That level of abundant fame didn't exist for that many people before the 1950s. The famous to lemming ratio is possibly larger now, although there are a lot more people, too.
