#6 RIP Karl

Karl Malden. I thought The Streets of San Francisco was pretty gritty for it's time.

Very sad - although he did live long and passed away in his sleep. Still, sad to see a great one go.

Another, and I used to watch (tv) him box


MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Managua Mayor Alexis Arguello, a three-time world boxing champion, was found dead at his home Wednesday, his Sandinista Party's Radio Ya said.

57, suicide

I used to watch Streets of SF in reruns as a kid. I think that show was most of what I knew of the Bay Area before I moved here. So sad.

We should start a Foo pool to see who's next.

97. Good job Karl. I enjoyed his work very much over the decades. I grew up watching him on TV and in films.

RIP.

He was 97 years old. This shouldn't count.

That's age discrimination, pure and simple. Death is death, regardless of how old you are.

I'll be riding daily when I'm 97. And I'll be posting here. That's 46 years from now, I calculate that by that time I will have at least 300,000 posts.

RIP Mr. Malden, I'm sorry I didn't know you were still alive.

97 is a looooong life, especially for a man...no tragedy here unless he died unfulfilled somehow. Death is a part of life but it should ideally come when we're absolutely decrepit.
