My Dad really rated Gigi and from all the obituaries, it's clear he was right.

R.I.P Carl Weathers. He was great on Arrested Development.

Country singer Toby Keith, 62.

He died last night, and last night I was listening to some of his songs last night and I haven't listened to him in ages. Spooky.

I just heard that Toby Keith passed and immediately thought of you Dels.


And that is spooky

I've been playing his music since he passed, I had forgotten how good his music was in his earlier career. He was a controversial character at times but the music always held up.

I really liked his first album a lot. One of my favorite country tunes is I Should Have Been A Cowboy

Sad news.....what a great player....

Always wondered what the story was with him taking the penalty with his right foot. Certainly a good way of keeping the keeper guessing....

One of the big honchos at NBC was a friend of OJ's and apparently told SNL producers to stop Norm from his OJ jokes or fire him. And they told Norm. But Norm told his jokes anyway. Legend.
