    Stiller and Meara on Ed Sullivan used to make me laugh. My first exposure to either one of them.

    They broke up the act to pursue separate careers and keep their message strong. It worked, they stayed married 61 years until Anne's death in 2015.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Anne in the the late 70's at The Library in New York City. She sat behind us watching stand up comedians (she was not performing). Nice lady, good couple.

    Jerry Sloan, former NBA player and coach, died today at age 78. He had a storied career both as a coach and as a player. He became the first Chicago Bull to have his number retired. He is 3rd on the all-time NBA list in coaching victories w 1221. He also coached 1 team (Utah Jazz) longer than any other NBA coach (32 years - 1979-80 to 2010-11).He had 15 straight winning seasons and also made the playoffs 15 years in a row. He is in the Basketball HOF. Unfortunately, he never won an NBA title either as a player or as a coach.

    Few remember this besides me, but Sloan actually originally entered the NBA as a member of the Baltimore Bullets (now the Wizards). The Bullets drafted him twice and he signed in 1965. In 1966, the Bulls selected him in the expansion draft. RIP.
