     The way 2011 has evolved, Hugo Chavez and Fidel probably shouldn't buy 2012 calendars.

Just as a follow up, Al Qaeda is taking credit for the Jon Bon Jovi death hoax, but Alex Jones has released a statement deeming it an "inside job." 

Bon Jovi does have a concert tonight, and now he has publicity.  Good one Jon.

I remember in the late 1980s when Marina Sirtis played Deanna Troi on Star Trek the Next Generation, she told the audience at Star Trek conventions that she wanted to have Jon Bon Jovi's baby.


And a few years later she ended up marrying a musician that looks like a Bon Jovi clone  8)

          That alone should prohibit her from having children, and actually she should have her uterus forcibly removed and burned for harboring such awful ambitions.

RIP Lynn Samuels.

I haven't heard her on the air since listening to WABC during that little election brouhaha in 2000.  She had a voice for print but was an entertaining progressive among the usual cast of characters at WABC.

       Not a fan, but she was an important part of that 1993-1995 heyday of WABC with Grant,Diamond,Lionel,Sliwa...entertaining station, I live in Boston and listened to 770 far more than my locals.

Cheetah the chimp from 1930s Tarzan flicks dies

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — A Florida animal sanctuary says Cheetah the chimpanzee from the Tarzan movies of the early 1930s has died at age 80.

The Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor announced that Cheetah died Dec. 24 of kidney failure.

Sanctuary outreach director Debbie Cobb on Wednesday told The Tampa Tribune that Cheetah was outgoing, loved finger painting and liked to see people laugh. She says he seemed to be tuned into human feelings.

Cheetah was the comic relief in the Tarzan series starring American Olympic gold medal swimmer Johnny Weissmuller. Cobb says Cheetah came to the sanctuary from Weissmuller's estate sometime around 1960.

Cobb says Cheetah wasn't a troublemaker. Still, sanctuary volunteer Ron Priest says that when the chimp didn't like what was going on, he would throw feces.

I just heard a report on the radio news that experts are starting to not believe this news report about "Cheetah" since there were several chimps that played the Cheetah role on the many 1930's Tarzan movies and that chimp may not have been one of the main ones. They also noted that 80 years old would be very old for a chimp and might be a record if true...

The Cheeta wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheeta
has a table of several chimps that played the role in the Tarzan movie, and apparently the one that died last week was called "Cheetah-Mike" but the ones that played in the most famous 1930s movies were named "Jiggs"

From the site:
Cheetah-Mike, a male chimpanzee owned by Suncoast Primate Sanctuary after being donated from Noell's Chimp Farm in Palm Harbor, FL.[15] Alleged to have been born about 1931 (claimed age in February 2008 was 77),[16] to have been acquired from the estate of Johnny Weissmuller in 1957, and to have been "one of the original 'Cheetahs' from Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan movies."[15] Died in Palm Harbor, Florida, of kidney failure on December 24, 2011.

Found these two new articles about the Cheetah Controversy:
http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2011/12/29/2882611/did-cheetah-tarzans-chimpanzee.html
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2079272/Tarzan-chimp-Cheetah-dies-aged-80-But-real-star-old.html


Apparently everyone wasn't a fan of Cheetah -- so says Mia Farrow, daughter of Maureen O'Sullivan, who played Jane in the "Tarzan" movies.
"My mom ... referred to Cheetah-the-chimp as 'that bastard' -- saying he bit her at every opportunity," she tweeted Wednesday.

Before Animal Planet stopped being a channel about animals, I was a huge fan of the series Escape to Chimp Eden and of the chimp rescuer Eugene Cussons, who gave up a cushy job in computers to devote his life to saving chimps. 

I remember his oldest fellow, Jao, which Wiki lists as 60-65 years old.  Jao was in real decline and losing his supremacy when the series was last on the air, so I have no idea if he's still alive.  I only remember that he seemed to be coming to the end of his natural life span, given things Eugene was saying at the time.

A great series for any animal lover if you can still find it anywhere.  The Wiki page has a chart of the major chimps from the series and their ages, rescue dates, etc.:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escape_to_Chimp_Eden

This link to information about Jao says he may be the oldest living chimp in South Africa:
