No way.  The competition must have been fixed.  Probably Russian involvement.

According to the report I read he died on the way back. That's pretty bleak, spending your final days with Noory. He must have been pretty low on the physicists totem pole if he could make a better living lugging a box of slides around the college circuit for 50 years.

Have you ever been to New Brunswick?  The prospect of returning there might be enough to kill me.

I know nothing about it but it sounds the kind of place you'd live in if you really liked shovelling snow.

Here's a clip of Friedman talking about his early life.

If you haven't read him you likely saw one of his books as a mini-series or movie at some point in time.

The winds of War, War and Remembrance and The Cane Mutiny are among the best books by a contemporary author I have read.

A character indeed.   

"Perhaps the most memorable involves a snowy night at the Upper East Side media hangout Elaine’s, where Dunleavy met the Norwegian fiancée of an Australian journalist.  While his pals decamped to another bar across the street, Dunleavy and the fiancée wound up outside, “humping in the snow, arses going up and down,” former Daily Mail correspondent George Gordon told The New Yorker for a profile of Dunleavy in 2000.  “As we were watching, a snowplow came up the street and ran over Dunleavy’s foot,” Gordon said. “By this time, the entire bar was in uproarious laughter.” Dunleavy “was so loaded, it didn’t matter,” Gordon said, but was eventually taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was diagnosed with a broken foot."

Billy Drago has died at the age of 73.  He was an actor who played lots of bad guys.  He was great playing the drug lord Ramon Cota in the Chuck Norris picture Delta Force 2: The Columbian Connection.  RIP, Billy.

Alf was one of my favorite all time TV shows.

Not to speak ill of the dead, but Wright was another of those "serious actors" who pissed and moaned about the TV role that made him famous/rich being beneath him. Others were Robert Reed (Brady Bunch), Tina Louise (Gilligan's Island) and Parnell Roberts (Bonanza).  I at least respected Roberts, he had the balls to leave the series rather take money for a show he badmouthed.

Whaaat? The Younger one died? And from H? WTF? I hadn't heard. Sucks and somewhat a shock though, I guess not, considering how many people, in all kinds of areas or society, are doing or hooked on that crap. Sad.

No word on this shocker from yesterday.  Autopsy won't be available until October due to family, and backlog.
