While the rest of you are sobbing in your lattes over the drug overdose of Heath Ledger, I'll save my tears for the late, great Suzanne Pleshette. I would've rather seen Suzy play a gay cowboy or the Joker any day.
Belated thanks to all those who thought of me first when hearing of Evel Knievel's death not long ago. I got a ton of "did you hear?" emails. I considered posting a tribute article to Knievel I wrote for my college paper in the early 90's. But, like everything else I did in art school, it turned out to be terrible when I looked at it again. I've been scheming about a caricature book collection of seventies pop culture icons, so I'm sure I'll revisit Evel again. As Red Buttons says in Viva Kneivel, "I'm a friend of Evel, too!"
