I just saw a thing on TV the other day about how Bernie was "battling a life threatening illness." Wow.

He was pretty cool. Shame, only 50.

Truly unfortunate. He brought a lot of laughter to the world and was highly successful in life. One doesn't expect pneumonia to be a killer of a 50 year-old, but he did have other lung problems. Sad.

Sad news, I didn't know he was sick either. I've only seen him in a few films but he was a funny guy.

It'll be much easier if you just comply.

i guess paul newman asked to go home; so he can die there instead of the hospital. the family is having a real hard time.

He had great comedic eyes. I know that sounds weird, but that was always a huge part of his humor, IMHO.

RIP, BM.
