Jerry Stiller dies at 92.

I was never a Seinfeld person, but he had a long career way before this and King of Queens.

to quote LeVar Burton when asked what he would do when Star Trek ended: "See, I had a career before Star Trek." :D

From that video he seemed like a very nice and kind guy. He didn't look that big to me. Dont have to be huge for diabetes to take your legs and your life. Our neighbor many years ago was a skinny old guy and it took his legs then his life. I love how he says "I wasn't on drugs THAT day" LOL! He sure seemed like it. Guess he was just having a wonderful moment. Call me names but I think it worse and sadder when someone like him dies than so prick asshole croaks. Not all life is equal. Now Im a bit sadder than i was before even.

God dammit.
Reno has a huge classic car show every year. It takes over the entire city for a whole week. In '99 Ken Osmond was a guest host for the Peppermmill's celebration, and I was asked to work with him (IE - help him out and keep him safe from idiots.) I spent the entire day hanging out with him and chatting. He was a great guy. RIP, Ken.

The last man alive to attempt to assassinate Hitler has passed away
Tributes have been paid to Holocaust survivor Henry Wermuth who has died aged 97.

The German-born Shoah educator and writer was a prisoner in numerous camps, including Auschwitz, Krakow-Plaszow and Mauthhausen.

In 1995, he was awarded the Johanna Kirchner Medal by the City of Frankfurt for his attempt to assassinate Hitler in 1942. After hearing rumours that Hitler was due to pass on a train, he piled stones and thick lengths of wood on the track in a bid to derail it and kill the dictator.

American held captive by the Nazi's for seven years and manages to escape during the bombing of Berlin. Hides out in Berlin and is rescued by the British at the end of the war. Damn Limeys turn him over to the Soviets and they hold him captive from 1946 to his death this week at the age of 84. God speed to the great swamp in the sky Saturn!

Batman Comic Book Writer Denny O’Neil Dies at 81
O’Neil wrote “Batman,” “Detective Comics” and “Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight” in addition to serving as an editor for DC’s Batman-related comic books from 1986 until 2000. Along with editor Julius Schwartz and artist Neal Adams, O’Neil helped to bring Batman back to his original, more ominous persona after the 1960s “Batman” TV series had a campier take on the superhero.

DC Comics publisher Jim Lee remembered him on Twitter as his “favorite Green Lantern writer to date.”

David Perlman, former science reporter at the San Francisco Chronicle, has died at 101. Here's what I wrote when he retired -- three years ago.

Science reporter David Perlman is retiring from the San Francisco Chronicle later this year. At age 98.

It's amazing to think about the discoveries and milestones he's covered in his career -- moon landings, the eradication of smallpox, the discovery of Lucy and other human ancestors, the HIV epidemic in San Francisco...

I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Perlman a couple of times (the last was maybe 15 years ago), and he's pretty much your ideal science journalist -- smart, dogged and curious.
