Just to be clear, All Dogs Go to Heaven is the only Burt Reynolds movie I have seen.

It’s kind of about dogs dying. It’s reallt just a kids movie about dogs.

Also lived cable-free until I was in my mid 20s. I'm not sure I've seen any of his big screen stuff, certainly not all the way through. He was kind of ubiquitous in certain small-screen guest-spot circles in the '80s though.

Claire Wineland, YouTube star and cystic fibrosis activist. The (self-centric) reason it particularly jumps out is that I'd literally heard of her three days ago when a friend shared a video on Facebook, and I was thinking "She seems a little annoying but her message seems cool and I should look into her work more" and then yesterday she died.

Burt Reynold's movies were occasionally very good but many of them were bad then and aged badly. Reynolds wasn't a 'serious' actor, nor was he a great comic actor. What he was was a guy with a great deal of screen presence who neither in real life nor on film seemed to take the whole thing very seriously. Yeah, he had a few major dramatic parts and he did well in them. But mostly he was a likable guy, the sort of guy women found attractive and men wanted to be like or at least to have as a friend.

William K. Coors has passed away at the age of 102, after being chairman of Molson Coors Brewing from 1959 to 2000 and then vice chairman until 2002. I assume that he will be buried like a Coors: close to water.

I find it interesting that CNBC believes that their audience knows who Grover Norquist and Joe Arpaio are, but Ron Jeremy needs context.

CNBC has probably mentioned Norquist and Arpaio a hundred times in the past few years and Jeremy maybe once. So I'd say they're not wrong about that.

Apparantly Hof is still going to be on the ballot for the state leg seat he was running for, and will likely win due to the partisan lean of the district.

If we stick to the precedent that whoever loses to the dead man becomes AG, it looks like we'll be getting a Romanov. Just as the Trump Administration would want it.

William Goldman, 87, R.I.P.

Goldman was a celebrity screenwriter, one of the earliest in an age when the phrase was still a Hollywood oxymoron; but aside from the work for which he will be best remembered, he was also a dominant force behind the scenes as an uncredited script doctor in, for example, no lesser colleague's work as Aaron Sorkin's "A Few Good Men." Maybe it wasn't entirely true that in Hollywood nobody knows anything, because Hollywood knew Goldman was a hell of a talented writer.
