Re: Garry Shandling passes away
I was sorry to hear he died but never quite understood why he was considered funny. Kinda like Jim Carrey, never understood why folk think he is funny either.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Ronnie Corbett
This one may be a bit obscure, but Ronnie Corbett, the more diminutive half of the Two Ronnies died last March 31st. I did not get most of their humour but I laughed my ass off at this:

Re: Merle Haggard
Love Merle. Sometimes binge on him -- and lots of others too, but today I'm binging on Merle: This is another tribute to his life, from the 90s:

Re: Merle Haggard
I always liked that song Are The Good Times Really Over For Good?|

It speaks to me of the lost America that I grew up idolizing. I realize now that seeing life through rose colored glasses isnt really what Jesus wants for me...but this song captures some of my nostalgia for what I felt I deserved from God.


Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

Wow. Saw him as an opening act for The Rolling Stones in LA, before he hit the big time.

Wow.

Re: Muhammed Ali
A loss and a life that was one of constant struggle. Lots to learn from Ali.

Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you're going to be right.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions? Scott Adams
