I’m sure he was happier than almost anyone that Voyager 1 was successfully debugged and is slowly returning to service.

Jerry West, who was selected to the Basketball Hall of Fame three times in a storied career as a player and executive and whose silhouette is considered to be the basis of the NBA logo, died Wednesday morning at the age of 86, the LA Clippers announced.

West was the third player in NBA history to reach 25,000 points, was an All-Star every year of his career and led the Los Angeles Lakers to the NBA Finals nine times, winning one title in 1971-72. He was also a 12-time All-NBA selection, an NBA Finals MVP as part of a losing team in 1969 and part of the NBA’s 75th anniversary team.

Dad’s Liquid Breakfast? I wonder if Dad’s bottles were frosted like Marge’s in Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). It would be so 80s.

I just read that Kevin Brophy passed away last month, MSTies will know him from The Being from Another Planet (Time Walker). I also remember him from a TV film and short-lived series named Lucan.

And if you don’t believe me, Gilbert Gottfried basically ended the whole idea of “comedy is dead” a couple of weeks after 9/11.

(That page claims there were boos, but I don’t hear any.)

Consider my track record. Would this community CONSIDER me weak? Given the conversation I’ve been in lately I just didn’t have the desire just then. Courage wasn’t a factor. More lacking the urge.

I was being facetious.

Also, “too soon is for the weak” clearly doesn’t always apply.

Someone telling some really crass joke about Mr. Rogers a couple of days after he died would definitely be telling that joke way too soon.
