Without looking I'm guessing he's the one mauled by a tiger who had several strokes and was pretty much in a vegetative state for the last ten years?


That was the one.

And let's get one thing straight. There's a big difference between a pilot and an aviator. One is a technician; the other is an artist in love with flight. — E. B. Jeppesen

Wow, that took me by surprise, had not heard a thing about Kelly Preston being sick. Really liked her character "Sherry" in View from the Top.

This one will probably cause the most consternation of all of 2020.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead at 87

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the enigmatic, longtime Supreme Court justice who attained near cult-like status among progressive circles, died Friday at the age of 87 from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.

Obviously for the family it could never come at a good time but for the country I don't think this could have come at a worse time. 46 days away from an already contentious Presidential election...this is really going to amp things up even more than they are now.

Perhaps most notable for being the pioneer of DJ pseudonyms, which were in no way whatsoever a tool to avoid paying tax.

I Like To Move It in Spanish is quite the listen if you're ever so inclined.
A million great ideas...

That's sad, but 90 is a good long life. RIP

"His wife Micheline and his two sons, Jason and Stephane have confirmed that he died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family.


I see this all the time and it never fails to unnerve me...first, I coudn't get to sleep if my entire family was just standing around my bed. Second, if I ever wake up to see my family all around my bed just watching me, I'll probably die of a heart attack on the spot! :))
