"Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of ‘The Young and the Restless,’ dies at 91"

My mother used to work for her in the 60s when she had a local talk show in Chicago at CBS affiliate WBBM. I discovered Marshall McLuhan when I was 14 because of it (it's a long story.)

According to my computer, you beat me literally by 24 seconds.

True. A loss to the world. 

25 or so Americans in Nashville, TN, due to a tornado.  Don't know any of them, but feel for their families.

Henri Richard at 84. The Canadians Flying Frenchmen of the 60s and 70s got me excited about hockey. The strike ended that love affair.

RIP “Pocket Rocket”.

In a short-lived MC career-two weeks- I introduced him around 1980 at Amazingrace in Evanston. Lot of interesting things went around there during that time period.

At least as a player. Jean Beliveau had 10 as a player and 7 as an executive.

Bummer.  I still listen to his work on a regular basis.  He will be missed. Probably the last great one left of that generatio is Sonny Rollins, who turns 90 later this year, and was still performing a few years ago.

Was thrilled to see Sonny at an intimate venue here in Toronto. It doesn’t seem long ago, but I just did the math and it was more than 20 years ago.

Max von Sydow.  Great actor. 90 yrs old.

It's a shame that all the headlines talk about his least significant work like The Exorcist and other American productions. For many of us it's his tremendous roles in Bergman movies that made him so great.

I will miss Michael. There are very few ultra bucket list items in my life but one of them would be to walk into his wine cellar in his home in London.

Lyle Waggoner--84. I remember when I first saw in LA his now ubiquitous Star Waggons.

Still remember him from The Carroll Burnett Show.  Funny guy; he didn't get enough credit with hams like Korman and Conway.

Somebody had to play the straight man.

From Yahoo Sports, "Harlem Globetrotters icon Fred 'Curly' Neal dies at 77 years old."

Saw him in the golden days with Meadowlark.

Hey , I can agree with you.  Loved the Globetrotters as a kid, Meadowlark and Curly Neal were so entertaining.

Forgot about Curly Neal. Remember they actually made a Saturday morning cartoon featuring them? It wasn't good. Remember Saturday morning cartoons? Great start to the weekend after a week of school.
