This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

Family Circus creator Bill Keane.

Really? Wow...had not heard that.

One of my friends used to put out an incredible zine called "So What" and one of the funniest recurring features was his "Bill Keane Must Die" column, which essentially was a scathing yet hilarious critique of recent Family Circus strips.

There used to be another fantastic zine out of Canada called Doomhauled which sometimes replaced the Family Circus captions with various filthy, demented things that were insanely funny.

If only that insipid comic strip would die with him, sadly they go on forever.

Well I guess they got their wish.  :-\

Ken Russell died yesterday...

Lair of the White Worm was freaking awesome...he will be missed. I wish more directors would take a page from his book.

Really like his work on MASH and Dragnet on TV....

Also like the movies "Support your Local Sheriff" and "Support your local Gunfighter".

RIP Sherman T. Potter

That is sad, I grew up with MASH and though I did not care for the later character iterations, he did a fine job and will be remembered fondly.

His best work on that series was not as Col. Potter though, but as the crazy general who guest starred in one of the first 2 seasons.

Bummer.  I didn't even realize he was sick until just the other day.
