Right on Kenike - I agree - he doesn't deserve to be remembered every 4th of July.

Now for some good news:

Jesse Helms is dead.

The bad news is that his epitaph will say that he died on the 4th of July like Adams and Jefferson.

ahem...

I sincerely apologize for calling the death of Jesse Helms "good news." He did many wonderful things for this country during his nearly 5 decades as senator from North Carolina. As a former NC resident, I followed the news very closely and watched how his voting in the senate propelled this country forward on issues like civil rights and AIDS research. Every time he made the news I couldn't help but think, "Wow, what a guy." I was proud to be a NC resident while he was senator of that great state. I sincerely hope countless others will follow in his footsteps. He will be missed.

Yes, his civil rights issues were top notch. Gee, I can't imagine what this country would be like if he hadn't spear-headed such a noble cause. I imagine my drinking fountain would say "Whites Only."

A few months late in reporting this one. How could I have missed this?

Michael Blodgett
January 1, 1940 – November 14, 2007
Novelist and screenwriter but most of all he was as actor and
was probably best remembered for his performance as playboy Lance Rocke in Russ Meyer's 1970 cult classic 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls'.

Los Angeles Times: Michael Blodgett

In the summer of 1967, Blodgett was emcee of the TV show, 'Groovy', a weekday program of beach-party pop music on Los Angeles' KHJ-TV.

Comedian, South Sider Bernie Mac dies at 50
August 9, 2008 Recommend (162)
FROM STAFF REPORTS

Comedian Bernie Mac died at Northwestern Memorial hospital early Saturday morning, according to Sun-Times Columnist, Stella Foster. He was 50.

Though the cause of death has not been confirmed, Mac had been hospitalized recently for pneumonia. Foster said that she received calls early Saturday morning from a close friend of the Mac family, confirming the reports of Mac's death.


Comedian Bernie Mac, whose career began in Chicago's comedy clubs, died at Northwestern Memorial hospital early Saturday morning, according to Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster. He was 50.

The columnist also said she was deeply saddened to receive such a phone call just an hour after Mac was pronounced dead.

"It brought tears to my eyes because Bernie Mac has always been my all-time favorite entertainer and comedian. It pains me to have to report that," Foster said during a phone interview on Saturday morning.

On Friday, a spokeswoman for the actor, whose real name is, Bernard McCullough, said that he had been responding well to treatment for the illness.

Publicist Danica Smith said Thursday in a statement that Mac's condition is ''stable.'' Smith first announced on August 1st that Mac was hospitalized in Chicago.

Smith has said the pneumonia isn't related to an inflammatory lung disease Mac also has. That condition has been in remission since 2005.

Foster noted that last weekend, several web sites reported wrongly that the comedian died.

Mac made waves last month with off-color jokes during a fundraiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The comedian starred in the critically acclaimed Fox television series ''The Bernie Mac Show.'' His film credits include roles in the ''Ocean's Eleven'' franchise.

Foster says she was remembers Bernie's comedic beginnings through his show, "Midnight Mac," which aired for four shows on HBO and was taped in Chicago in 1995.

"It was a variety entertainment show," she said, "He even had dancers called Macaroni's. That was my first exposure to how talented Bernie Mac was. And after that show, that's when Hollywood started beating down his door."

The actor's upcoming movies include "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" starring Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer; and "Soul Men" with Samuel L. Jackson and Isaac Hayes.

There is no word on whether public services will be held.

Wow, that seriously bums me out! I met Isaac Hayes a few years ago when he was performing at Yoshi's in Oakland. I was at a nearby restaurant where a friend of mine was playing piano. He come over to the booth where my friend and I were sitting on his break to talk to my friend about possibly working with Isaac's band. He was a very nice gentleman.

Oddly, he and Bernie Mac had just made a movie together that is scheduled to be released next year. Let's hope their co-star Samuel L. Jackson isn't next to go!
