RFK's granddaughter, Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean's body found by divers



I'm no fan of the Kennedy clan, but I have to admit they've had a rough time of it as a family. Also sad that her boy, though not found as a of now, is part of this horrible accident.

I completely forgot Tripp even existed.

Also, sad to see Miller go. Perfect Strangers and Family Matters were two of my childhood favorites.

Victor Skrebneski lit the planes and curves of faces like a cinematographer from Hollywood’s golden age.

He made everyone look as beautiful as if they were in a film noir.

The Chicago-based, universally acclaimed photographer died Saturday of cancer, according to friends and business associates. He was 90 and had been a photographer for 70 years.

This is a little late, but Honor Blackman wasn't young any more in Goldfinger, but she was still plenty hot.

WWE is saddened to learn that Howard Finkel has passed away at age 69.

When considering the greatest ring announcers in the history of sports and sports-entertainment, you’d be hard-pressed to name one better than Howard Finkel. A native of Newark, NJ, “The Fink” — a label that had been attached affectionately to Howard over the years — made his ring announcing debut at Madison Square Garden in 1977 for WWE’s predecessor, WWWF.

RIP to Mr. Dennehy. F/X is such a great little underseen gem, and he's a big part of the reason. Also Tommy Boy.
