I have to laugh at the look on her face. It's a classic half-smile/half-snarl that's unique to the metro-NYC area. It's like she's kind of smiling but she's ready to say "Ey, whassa mattayou" at any moment. My junior high school yearbook is full of that look - even from me and my brutha. The girl on the left must be from out of town.

This is my opinion. I believe that because of MTV singers now have to be also good looking to be commercially viable. There are many (IMO) from the pre-MTV era that would not be successful based upon their singing talent alone.

Looking at Omar's pictures of The Ronettes. They would have been successful in the video era of the music industry we see today.

NEW YORK (AP) — Howard Hesseman, who played the radio disc jockey Dr. Johnny Fever on the sitcom “WKRP in Cincinnati” and the actor-turned-history teacher Charlie Moore on “Head of the Class,” has died. He was 81.

Hesseman died Saturday in Los Angeles due to complications from colon surgery, his manager Robbie Kass said Sunday.

NEW YORK (AP) — P.J. O’Rourke, the prolific author and satirist who re-fashioned the irreverence and “Gonzo” journalism of the 1960s counterculture into a distinctive brand of conservative and libertarian commentary, has died at age 74.

O’Rourke died Tuesday morning, according to Grove Atlantic Inc. Books publisher and president Morgan Entrekin. He did not cite a specific cause, but said O’Rourke had been ill in recent months.

Patrick Jake O’Rourke was a Toledo, Ohio, native who evolved from long-haired student activist to wavy-haired scourge of his old liberal ideals, with some of his more widely read takedowns appearing in a founding counterculture publication, Rolling Stone. His career otherwise extended from serving as editor in chief of National Lampoon to a brief stint on “60 Minutes” in which he represented the conservative take on “Point/Counterpoint”; to frequent appearances on NPR’s game show “Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me!”

Agree with him or not, he was a brilliant man and a great writer.

I have to admit. He had some great one-liners. He was one of the few right leaning comics who was actually funny.

One of my favorite character actors.

Fred Ward. A 40 plus year career in television and film including memorable turns in Tremors and The Right Stuff, and (one of my guilty pleasures) Remo Williams has died at 79.
