I got online a few minutes ago and what do I see? A headline that Katherine Hepburn is dead. I'm really kind of bummed.

I only heard about a couple of hours ago myself. Man, the last few years... Sinatra, Jack Lemmon, Bob Hope - old-school icons disappearing left and right. In the back of your mind you know they're human beings as frail as any other, but when they do eventually go it's like a sudden sharp slap in the face.

Really makes you think, eh? Life is short.

Mickey Rooney, however, is immortal.

And short. Very short.

What, Jack Lemmon is dead? When did this happen? A shame actually, I really liked his movies.

Ages ago, man. July 27 of 2001, to be precise. Long-time friend Walter Matthau went not long before him, somtime around mid 2000 I think.

Did you guys hear about it yet? Looks like we can add Barry White to the list as well. Man, what a bummer.

yes and Buddy Hacket also passed away, life is so unfair, all these great people gone, and Liz Friken Taylor still lingers on near the monkey man alien's Never Ever ranch.

Oh **** ! Man , I'm shocked ... but ... you
know what ? Right now somewhere a little
child dies of hunger ... and now and now and
now and now and now ...

Ah, yes, but can a little child belt out "Fit as a Fiddle" while tapdancing at 100 beats-per-minute?

07-06-2003, 01:15 PM
well...some might have...if they had the way to live...:(

So the "Whale Of Love" has left us. Bummer.

He started out as a dancer and went into movies. He was going to be the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz but the makeup nearly killed him. Eventually he went into television. He's best known for The Beverly Hillbillies and Barnaby Jones.
