    Charlie could easily afford to dress like a king. I think the value of those suits has multiplied now that Charlie has worn them as well.

    just listening to a repeat of his interview with Fresh Air. Really bummed about this one.

    Norm Macdonald dies at age 61. Nine year battle with cancer.

    He was hilarious!

    I'm not sure - I do remember the court case was ruled on while I was working in France in the '90s. My French colleagues were not happy about how light a sentence the medical staff received, though I don't remember the exact details.
    I'm just here for the baseball.

    Yeah, he was a one of a kind. This is the first I heard of his cancer. In a world where it is hard to keep things private, I am glad he was able to make that decision and it was not undermined. Cancer is a bitch and takes far too many too young.

    Norm MacDonald on battles with cancer: “I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.”
