Two famous folks passed away today.

Ross Perot, 1992 Independent Presidential Candidate died earlier today at 89. He got 19% of the vote against H.W. Bush and Clinton. He also got parodied several times on SNL. May he RIP. CryCryCryCry

And we just got word that Rip Torn has died at 88. Known for his long career as Artie on The Larry Sanders Show, he was in a gazillion movies as small roles, but one big role he had was in the forgotten '80s comedy movie "Beer", with Loretta Swit (Hot Lips). May he RIP too. CryCryCryCry

I remember Rip played Nixon once in a network mini series, I think.

He was a great actor and Perot was an original personality.

RIP Rip

RIP Ross

RIP Rip 'n Ross.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Ross was a nightmare, but certainly one of a kind and only to those of us he (his organization - EDS) supported competition to (they never won). He kept the blood flowing and the mere mention of his name gave me a hangover...there will never be another Ross. RIP...

Rip Torn was one of a kind and always enjoyable in film - RIP.
