Katherine Hepburn

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.


Jolly good.

Mickey Rooney, however, is immortal.

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.


Jolly good.

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.

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


Jolly good.

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.

A few months ago, Robert Stack, as well. Awwwwwwww........


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

It's a bad summer for celebrities. They're really dropping like flies.
