Not a very sunny day on Sesame Street: Caroll Spinney, voice of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch (among others), has passed at 85.

Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
I didn't know of this musician's work, aside from the singing he apparently did on "Conjunction Junction" of School House Rock fame: jazz trumpeter Jack Sheldon at 88.

And former NBA commissioner David Stern passed away at 77 today.

[edit] At the end of the day, news announced another sports figure: Don Larsen of World Series perfect game fame, at 90. [edit: 1/4] More from the world of sports: former NFL coach Sam Wyche, at 74.
