Couple possibilities....Patrick Swayze has cancer :(

Then you have Walter Cronkite who's health isn't too great lately either.

:cry:

fa·mous (fā'məs)
adj.

1. Well or widely known. See Synonyms at noted.
2. First-rate; excellent: had a famous time at the party.


[Middle English, from Anglo-Norman, from Latin fāmōsus, from fāma, fame; see bhā-2 in Indo-European roots.]
fa'mous·ness n.


I would say widely known qualifies.

I didn't even realize he was still around. :(

Did the rest of you see the touching tribute to the late Jeff Goldblum on Colbert last night? If not, here it is. It's likely to be the funniest bit on Colbert for at least a day or so.

Actor Karl Malden passed away today; he was 97. I remember him most from the American Express TV commercials he did.

He also played Gen. Omar Bradley in the movie Patton. 97...wow. He sure lived a long life. I hope I make it to half that age.

a website said:
Golden Globe-winning actor Harve Presnell has died. The 75-year-old star of 'Fargo' succumbed to pancreatic cancer on Tuesday at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif, EW.com and the Associated Press are reporting.
I can't say I saw Fargo, so I don't really know his work.

I saw that. Very funny bit. Goldblum has been on Colbert alot recently.

You see the bit he did about the fly President Obama killed?
