I was sad to learn Rue McClanahan had died.    She was so funny in The Golden Girls.  The whole show was funny and I loved watching it.  She was such a flirt in the series always going on dates.

 " Director, "Rebel" actor Corey Allen dies at 75 "

  http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100629/people_nm/us_allen_1

    By Mike Barnes

    
Quote
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Corey Allen, who fatally challenged James Dean to a "chicken race" in the 1955 film classic "Rebel Without a Cause" before embarking on a career as a prolific TV director, died of natural causes in Hollywood on Sunday, two days before his 76th birthday.

With the May 29 death of his longtime friend Dennis Hopper, Allen was briefly the last surviving member of the "Rebel" main cast. He played Buzz Gunderson, one of the pic's antagonistic tough guys in a leather jacket.

Allen turned to directing in 1969, and collected an Emmy Award for a 1983 episode of "Hill Street Blues" after being nominated for another series episode two years earlier. In all, he shot about 80 TV episodes and 20 TV movies.


  For die of natural, he was still young and two days before his birthday.....too sad !  R.I.P   :(

RIP Geoffrey.

He was an eclectic actor and I enjoyed many of his rolls.  A real 'old school' actor.

R.I.P., Bob Sheppard, voice of the New York Yankees for more than fifty years.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/12/sports/baseball/12sheppard.html



Quote
From the last days of DiMaggio through the primes of Mantle, Berra, Jackson and Jeter, Sheppard’s precise, resonant, even Olympian elocution — he was sometimes called the Voice of God — greeted Yankee fans with the words, “Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Yankee Stadium.”

“The Yankees and Bob Sheppard were a marriage made in heaven,” said his son Paul Sheppard, a 71-year-old financial adviser. “I know St. Peter will now recruit him. If you’re lucky enough to go to heaven, you’ll be greeted by a voice, saying, ‘Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to heaven!’ ”

In an era of blaring stadium music, of public-address announcers styling themselves as entertainers and cheerleaders, Sheppard, a man with a passion for poetry and Shakespeare, shunned hyperbole.

“A public-address announcer should be clear, concise, correct,” he said. “He should not be colorful, cute or comic.”

R.I.P. Harvey Pekar.

Quote
Harvey Pekar, whose autobiographical comic book series "American Splendor" portrayed his life with bone-dry honesty and wit, was found dead at home early Monday, authorities said. He was 70.

Quote
Pekar never drew himself but depended on collaborations with artists, most notably his friend R. Crumb, who helped illustrate the first issue of the ironically titled "American Splendor," published in 1976. It was made into an acclaimed 2003 film starring Paul Giamatti. The most recent "American Splendor" was released in 2008.

Pekar's quirky commentary developed a following and his insights and humor were often a bit on the dark side.

 One other big loss for Yanks....  R.I.P. " The Boss " George Steinbrenner.

  Yankees' Steinbrenner dies at 80

   ESPN.com news services

   http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/news/story?id=5375561

  
Quote
NEW YORK -- George Steinbrenner, who rebuilt the New York Yankees into a sports empire with a mix of bluster and big bucks that polarized fans all across America, died Tuesday. He had just celebrated his 80th birthday July 4.

Steinbrenner had a heart attack, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Fla., and died at about 6:30 a.m. ET, according to multiple reports.


"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing. He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80," the Steinbrenner family said in a statement.

"He was an incredible and charitable man. First and foremost he was devoted to his entire family -- his beloved wife, Joan; his sisters, Susan Norpell and Judy Kamm, his children, Hank, Jennifer Jessica and Hal; and all of his grandchildren.

"He was a visionary and a giant in the world of sports. He took a great but struggling franchise and turned it into a champion again."

The Steinbrenner family said that funeral arrangements will be private, however details about an additional public service will be announced at a later date.

His death was the second in three days to rock the Yankees. Bob Sheppard, the team's revered public address announcer from 1951-07, died Sunday at 99.

For more than 30 years, Steinbrenner lived up to his billing as "the Boss," a nickname he earned and clearly enjoyed as he ruled with an iron fist.

Thanks, though he'd been ill and "not himself" for so long that I'm not exactly grief-stricken. How odd that he went right after Sheppard, though ... it's almost as if he was waiting for someone worthy of announcing his arrival in Heaven to be there ahead of him.
