I had thoughbt for some time that Roy Rogers either had stuffed his horse when it died or his wife. I was never sure. This clears things up.

That's a shame. On a related topic, it appears that after reporting this unfortunate piece of news, NBC's Brian Williams inadvertently pulled an open mic gaffe a la Dubya and Kasey Kasem.

"An apology is called for".

No, it's not.

Maybe the network owes an apology for leaving the mic on, but I can tell none of these people have ever worked in news:

It's just news, folks, it's not real people. Of *course* they make tacky insensitive jokes. I've never been on a shoot of any type, except religious shoots crewed by members of the congregation, where that sort of crap *didn't* go on.

Deal with it.

Or don't watch TV.
