RIP Eddie Albert.
As Mr. Kimball might have said, he was an actor
. Well, not really an actor, but a war hero. He was awarded a Bronze star...well, it wasn't really bronze, more like a...anyway, for his efforts at Tarawa
. But maybe he was more of an environmentalist
...oh, anyway, dig into some hotscakes
and remember Mr. Douglas.

Death in threes? Jonno
pointed it out about six weeks ago, and I thought to myself that he was right. But man, the deaths are coming thick and fast now. The score, for those of us playing along at home, is: Musicians' deaths, 3 (John Lee Hooker, Chet Atkins
and Joe Henderson
), actors' deaths: 2 (Carroll O'Connor, Jack Lemmon
) and Net folks' deaths, 2 (Jim Ellis
and Michael Hauben.
(Boozoo Chavis' passing, noted by fooljay,
could be totted up in the musicians' column as well. Anthony Quinn and Joan Sims could go in the actors' column, if (like harrycaul
you were so inclined.)
