Saddened to hear that Norm MacDonald has passed away.

Oh no, not Norm. That guy was hilarious. One of the last times I saw him was on David Spade's show last year. You should get his book, "Based on a True Story: Not a Memoir" (Random House, 2017). It's so good, I loaned it to a friend and didn't get it back.

Edit: Today, I remembered that I loaned my copy of "The Norm Show" complete series on DVD to another friend a few years ago and I didn't get that back either. Now, it's hard to find.

One of the pioneers of home cumputers, at least here in the UK, has passed away. Sir Clive Sinclair inventor of the Sinclair Scientific Calculator (the very first calculator I ever bought), the ZX-81 home computer, Sinclair Spectrum and even the C5 electric vehicle has gone at the age of 81:

Tommy Kirk from Old Yeller and Swiss Family Robinson fame was found dead in his Las Vegas home.

Thought maybe there might be a stray card of him but couldn't find anything.

I'm sorry to hear that. He might be in a group shot for "Swiss Family Robinson" on a card in one of the Disney sets. I don't think there was ever a set for that movie. He was in "Mars Needs Women" and "It's Alive" (1969) so he might be on a card for those somewhere.

Of the the three most sadistic children's movies I can think of, Old Yeller tops the list. The other two are Bambi and Dumbo, but as cartoons they are less realistic. Some dope got me to watch all of them as a kid. Big Grin

Tommy Kirk was a well known child actor and made a few movies when he got into his twenties, but Disney had dropped him by then. He was gay in a time when it ruined careers and he had some hard years afterwards, but he survived outside show business and was inducted as a Disney Legend in 2006. He wasn't bitter about his treatment. RIP Mr. Kirk.

Peter Scolari has died at 66 of cancer.

He was, of course, famous for "Bosom Buddies" with Tom Hanks in the early 1980s. Then he did "Newhart" and in the late 1990s, he did the TV version of "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" for 3 years.

I just read that Joanna Cameron passed away last week from complications of a stroke at the age of 70. She had retired from acting back in 1980 but she was memorable for her role in "The Secrets of Isis," a Saturday morning show in the 70's. My brothers and I watched that show.

The article noted an appearance in Columbo but I recalled that she was in an episode of the short-lived "Spider-Man" show that also ran during the 70's. Back then, they couldn't do a good web-shooting special effect. They opted for web that looked more like a rope and it looked clunky in action. It's what they had to work with.

This one is just sad and ironic.

Glen de Vries, a Blue Origin employee who flew with William Shatner on their rocket ride of October 13th, has died less than one month later. He and another man were killed in the plane crash of a private single engine Cesna in a wooded area of NJ yesterday. Details are scarce and the investigation is on-going, but it sounds like he was the pilot.

How strange is that and how many people have to die in private planes before they realize its not a safe, cool hobby.

Another great irony is JFK Jr, perhaps even worse. When Jackie was alive, she refused to let him fly a plane. Maybe because her step-son had died in his own plane. So JFK Jr. waited until after she passed away and then he did what he always wanted to do. You know the rest . . . life is strange. RIP.

Eddie Mekka of "Laverne & Shirley" fame has died at 69. I don't think he was on any cards.
