Someone died yesterday who was on the sitcom "Father knows best" I think that was the name. I watched it as a kid but then again I watched a lot of sitcoms when I was a kid. It was aabout a man who had a bunch of adoted children.
Anyhow...may he rest in peace

Dear Abby died yesterday. I know the column has been penned by another for years, but it's not the same.

It's not what you know, it's what people think you know.

Sometime recently, Johnathan Winters passed away.

he and red skelton are certainly the two greatest commedians of my time. many others are/were excellent, but these two were true artists.

On June 19th, James Gandolfini passed away. I remember him from the Sopranos, and he was a well-distinguished actor.

Yesterday, July 13th, Cory Monteith was found dead, and, although I do not watch Glee, I know this death is also worth mentioning. It was sad to me, and I'm sure it's sadder to his fans.

Nelson Mandela died today at the age of 95. He always impressed me for some reason, and I know we are in a better place because of his efforts.

I agree. Nelson Mandela was quite an inspiration.

Robin Williams died today at 63. Suicide probable, but what a loss of a great comedian.

Just like Elvis and Marilyn, all the public adoration could not overcome the depression, or was it that that caused it? So very sad to lose one of the very best ever. RIP Robin Williams. Nano Nano

Its been a while since anyone posted to this topic and the system locked it.

I unlocked it, short of opening a new topic... to just ask that we all take a moment to pause and reflect about the 120 or so individuals who died today at the hands of what is being called a terriorist attack in Paris. They may not have had big names in the news, but today, they are the news; and their lives matter.

I agree, Randy. Such a horrific time for France and all the other countries who have already experienced such attacks. So many have now closed their borders and are deporting those already taken in. I just hope the US takes heed of the terrible and tragic events happening and follows suit. I've been following the news reports and see that we are now at the highest level of terrorist warnings since the attacks on American soil on 9-11. So sad, such loss, and such devastation...

Prayers for France and the other countries already dealing with these attacks.


SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

I sincerely hope that the general public will keep their eyes and ears open to any usual activity anywhere, schools, malls, sports venues as well as concerts, as well as subways, railways and interstates. even your own neighborhoods. Like they say about worshiping God, I would rather worship him and find out there is no God, than not worship Him and find out there is a God. I would rather report some thing and find out it is nothing, than not report an unusual activity and have it blow up my family or neighborhood.

Both Lemmy and David Bowie have passed on recently. If we ever needed any more proof that good music was dead....

I am sure most people who grew up with David Bowie feel the same way.
He was part of my life. He was my family.
I cried when I heard the news, and I still shed a tear when I hear the news repeating it.
He lives on in his music.
His last film clip is very telling.
What a man! There world is a better place because of people like him.
Rest in Peace.
