First Graham, now Terry. The Python is getting slimmer.

Here's The NYT's take: Terry Jones, Monty Python Founder and Scholar, Is Dead at 77

Check out John Cleese's and Eric Idle's various books over the past decade.

When I think about John Cleese's "Two down, four to go" comment, the next thing that pops into my head is "Wink, wink, nudge, nudge."

Now, how perverse is that?

Jim Lehrer, a real reporter and newsman. He was dedicated to accurately portraying events without resorting to hype and irrelevant video clips.

I have watched and admired Jim literally since his first appearance on KERA's Newsroom. He had a rare talent for asking hard questions in a way that elicited good answers without creating rancor.

Diana Rigg, best known for playing Emma Peel in The Avengers, but a fine actress as attested by her other films. I never had the pleasure of seeing her in the theater but I always enjoyed her movies. As a young man in the '60s, I had a crush on her as Mrs. Peel.
