I didn't realize this:

Quote
Elmore Rual Torn Jr. was born in Temple in the Texas hill country. His father was an agricultural economist, and Torn attended Texas A&M and the U. of Texas, studying animal husbandry before turning to acting, training under actor, director and scholar B. Iden Payne.

I sW him in an episode of “Columbo” and one of my favorite movies from the 80s, a little hidden gem called “Beer”.

He was one of those actors who made acting look like it was no effort at all. Kudos!

Rest In Peace , Sir.

Jim Bouton
Ten-season MLB vet dies at 80



Bouton played for the New York Yankees and Houston Astros over the course of his career; he also had a brief stint with the Seattle Pilots, who lasted a single year and were the shortest-lived MLB team of the modern era. Eight years after retiring, the pitcher made a brief comeback with the Atlanta Braves.

Bouton eventually became better known for his off-field work than his baseball. His 1969 book Ball Four was one of the first unvarnished exposés on the subject and drew ire from many of his teammates for divulging the details of "inside baseball" (literally). He later played himself in a short-lived TV series based on the book, in addition to a number of other acting roles and work as a sports anchor at New York City's TV stations. Outside of media, he was also an early investor in Big League Chew, the bubble gum in a pouch.

Bouton died July 10 from brain damage caused by a 2012 stroke.

I know he meant well, but his greatest impact on history was unleashing the Clinton Crime Machine.
If "Read my Lips" Daddy Bush hadn't been so politically tone deaf and out of touch with the rank and file, maybe Ross would not have had the traction he did. Either way, the Clinton Crime Machine was coming, and while it might have been delayed, it would not have been stopped except by some serious prosecutions.

Denise Nickerson
Former child actress most famous for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory overdoses at 62


Nickerson in retirement, age 54.

Nickerson had a substantial acting career as a child, most famously Violet Beauregard, the gum-obsessed girl who gets turned to a blueberry because of her uncontrolled habit, in the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. She had a number of other roles as a young adult before largely exiting show business in 1978 when she turned 21.

She suffered a severe stroke in 2018. On July 8, 2019, she overdosed on various medications in her son's medicine cabinet (where she was being cared for) in a possible suicide attempt and died two days later.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

In this era of having to see human garbage continually being glorified in the media, seeing a story like this makes you realize that not is all bad about the world.

Just one of many such stories.

@Bigun

I happen to know for a fact that when VN Medal of Honor winner Franklin D.Miller was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given 6 weeks to live that Perot visited him to get copies of all his lab results and doctors notes,and forwarded them to the top cancer surgeons in the country. If something could have been done to save Miller's life,Perot volunteered to pay every dime of the expenses. I know this to be a fact because Miller told me about it on the telephone a couple of weeks before he died.

Thanks @sneakypete!  As I said, this is but one of many such stories.  Ross was a true patriot in every sense of the word.

Yes, Ross Perot would have been a great president I am sure. Remember,  I think he use to say "that sucking sound you hear", talking about NAFTA.

Obituary: Andrew Graham-Yooll, the man who dared to report on Argentina's missing
By Vicky Baker BBC News


Andrew Graham-Yooll was born in Argentina to British parents and always straddled both cultures

When plainclothes policemen came to the Buenos Aires Herald's office brandishing machine guns, the newspaper's staff knew they were coming.

It was 22 October 1975 and the police were looking for the small Argentine newspaper's news editor, Andrew Graham-Yooll.

A visit from armed police would normally have meant certain death, but the office had been tipped off in advance, and someone had already been able to get word out to a lawyer and to overseas news agencies, meaning the raid was on the record.

Jerry Lawson, Lead Singer of the Persuasions, Is Dead at 75

Jerry Lawson, who for four decades was the lead singer of the Persuasions, a group that revived the art of a cappella singing and attracted a loyal worldwide following, died on Wednesday in Phoenix. He was 75.

His death was confirmed by his wife, Julie. She said that Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, had compromised Mr. Lawson’s immune system.

Charles Levin
Actor known for his bit parts in sitcoms found dead at 70

Active primarily in the 1980s and 1990s, Levin accumulated a long list of bit parts in films and television series. Among some of his more notable roles:
  • On Alice, Levin's Elliot Novak, a police officer, served as the plot device that brought the series to a close as Elliot and the titular Alice fell in love and married.
  • On The Golden Girls, he played a gay chef named Coco. He was originally to be a series regular, but fan reaction to Estelle Getty's Sophia Petrillo, and the greater variety in plot lines Sophia's character offered, led to Coco being written out after a single episode.
  • On Seinfeld, he played a mohel in the episode "The Bris."
  • On Hill Street Blues, he played the recurring role of Eddie Gregg.

Mostly retired for the previous 20 years, Levin went missing in early July. After being reported missing on the 8th, his car was found on the 12th and his body on the 14th.
