Art Linkletter R.I.P.

Aw man, not Art Linkletter!

For you young’uns  out there, Art Linkletter was a fixture of us oldie’s collective childhood with his radio show “Kids Say the Darndest Things.”  That’s where I got all my material when I was little anyway. I will also remember his more recent advice to anyone afraid of getting old: find new friends. You’ll need them if you actually do outlive all your peeps. He was 97. (CBC)

To find out who else is dead today, go to Dead or Alive for a helpful database of people who you thought were dead but aren’t. From now on, I’m going to stop spreading it around that Abe Vigoda is dead. I really thought he was. In other sad news related to kids who say the darndest things, actor Gary Coleman is in critical condition after a fall. (CBC)
