    So it must be because we are all children of the "Mass Media Age" but it really feels like many cultural/media icons are finally passing on. Maybe it is just that we are all growing older but man my youth is a mere memory now. RIP Cal - you at least tried to have fun while being a "shady" used car salesman - LOL!

    Oh and don't mind me - I lost a very close friend a month and a half ago to cancer (he was 53) and just yesterday heard that a close family friend's son lost his wife (to cancer yet again) at 30. Sometimes life just friggin' sucks.
