RIP: Warren Oates

Actually, I'm a tad bit late for this obituary - approximately 27 and 1/2 years late! I subscribe to an email list for WATN (Where Are They Now) that looks in on celebs from the past, reports on their life, and what they're doing now. One of the features in that report is called "Dead or Alive", which tells you a celeb name as well as a famous role of theirs, and asks you to guess if they are still with us - the answers are always at the end of the e-mail. Mr.Oates showed up on that list tonight and, while I never knew his name, I certainly knew him for his last major role; it was/is from one of my favorite movies: "Stripes". . .

Yes. . .it's Sargent Hulka! All of these years, and I never had any idea that he was gone. . .he died on April 3, 1982 of a heart attack. Apparently the Type A personality he portrayed in Stripes was true to character. In addition to his famous (and one of his final) role in Stripes, Oates had a long and distinguished career in film.

Soupy Sales has died at 83

Soupy Sales, the rubber-faced comedian whose anything-for-a-chuckle career was built on 20,000 pies to the face and 5,000 live TV appearances across a half-century of laughs, has died. He was 83.

Sales died at Thursday night at Calvary Hospice in the Bronx, New York, said his former manager and longtime friend, Dave Usher. Sales had many health problems and entered the hospice last week, Usher said.

Lou Dobbs: "Kids, do NOT eat your vegetables"

The Dobbs took issue with "student vegetable indoctrination" on his Monday show. It seems that a Baltimore city school district,in an effort to cut costs and get children to eat healthier food, has adopted "Meatless Monday" in it's schools. Dobbs, as well as the meat industry, complain that it's an "unhealthy dose of indoctrination to students". This despite overwhelming support from district parents. Here's the video:

Glen Beck - Keeping it Real. . .

Looking straight into the camera, and in all apparent seriousness, Beck warned that progressives have been working for years to strip Americans of their individual rights, and that in earlier times they would be called "tyrants" and "slave owners."

2010 is looking UGLY

New Jersey Republicans complain that Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, has turned nasty to gain ground in his re-election bid this year. Republicans elsewhere should brace themselves.That's because Mr. Corzine’s strategy for a comeback victory has turned into a template for Democratic candidates to survive in the 2010 midterm elections. Its shorthand description: winning ugly.
