    74 isn't super old but also not young, so I don't know that "so soon" is the phrase I would use.

    Plus he was Sarge in Toy Story, not a big part but he was still good.

    Natural causes at 65. That's sad.

    Harry Anderson was a guy who spent a lot of time with material that didn't match his talent. But I can't blame him for his choices; most actors would be thrilled to have a dozen years starring on TV.

    I was a big Harry Anderson fan, and Night Court was one of my favorite shows when it was on. Very sad loss at his age.

    I had seen Harry Anderson do some standup on HBO's Young Comedian Show and loved it, even before he got his TV break. So I was a big fan of Night Court as well.

    A bit of hypocrisy that pisses me off: MSNBC spent the entire night gushing over Barbara Bush, which I'm fine with. But can you imagine Fox News doing the same for Michele Obama or Hillary? Me, neither.

    Kudos to MSNBC for doing the right thing.

    Barbara Bush always seemed to me to be a genuinely caring and nice person, and politics be damned. CNN also had nothing but good to say about her (at least what I heard and saw for the short while I watched it). Fox News is all lunatics and idiots, so anything they would have to say is shit anyway.

    Eremius put it succinctly and well.

    Regardless of how you feel about her husband's and son's presidencies, Barbara Bush was a wonderful First Lady, and deserves all the respect she is getting.

    And of course, Trump's statement of condolences had the wrong date on it... because of course it did.

    Before the time of most folks here, I suppose, but Bruno Sammartino was The Man in pro wrestling for longer than anyone else:

    I remember him from when he was a broadcaster for the WWE. He lived a long life for a pro wrestler.

    Not for a pro wrestler of his era -- when he started in 1959, you probably wouldn't make it as a pro wrestler unless you were a tough, hard-to-kill son of a gun who was likely to live a long time (only exceptions I can think of would have been the unnaturally large types, like Andre the Giant and Gorilla Monsoon, both of whom died relatively early).

    Also, steroids weren't a big thing in his time, so his generation wouldn't be as susceptible to the kind of physical problems that plagued the guys who came after and killed 'em young.

    NPR Newscaster Carl Kasell Dies At 84, After A Lifelong Career On-Air

    I knew him mostly as the judge and scorekeeper for "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me", the NPR quiz show.
    Wait Wait's Peter Sagal gave a great eulogy piece this morning on my local NPR.
