Cause I just saw this, but was last month.
 Mira Furlan, who famously played Danielle Rousseau on TV’s “Lost” and Delenn on “Babylon 5,” died on Jan. 20 at the age of 65. Her manager told the New York Times that the cause of death was complications of the West Nile virus.

 

I really liked her. {#Cheers}

Colbert King finds the true measure of Rush Limbaugh's worth. It ain't pretty. 



Let’s not mince words about Limbaugh’s legacy

“So for Colbert King to say, ‘Rush Limbaugh, his biggest concern was Republicans should do nothing to help Obama.’ Damn right. Damn right. Helping Obama hurts the country.”

— Rush Limbaugh,
July 25, 2011

What had set Rush Limbaugh off? I had noted during Gordon Peterson’s “Inside Washington” talk show on ABC7 that anti-Obama sentiment was behind some of the difficulty in getting anything done in Washington. Referring to President Barack Obama’s active role in ending the showdown over raising the debt ceiling, I had said that the arch-conservative radio host made “no reference to saving the country, no such reference to averting disaster with the debt ceiling. It was a question of helping or hurting Obama.”

And Limbaugh agreed wholeheartedly. After all, it was nothing new for him. As I wrote at the time, four days prior to Obama’s inauguration, Limbaugh famously declared: “I hope he fails.”


...

If so, whatever Limbaugh won was the country’s loss. His legacy lives on through the lives of conservative TV hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and so many others who daily and dutifully serve up the same measures of obnoxiousness that Limbaugh delivered through the microphone for decades.

Of course, that might depend upon what you think after hearing what has come out of his mouth.

Such as:

● Telling a Black caller: “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”

● Saying on the air: “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

● Mocking the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People: “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.”

● Commenting on professional athletes competing at the highest levels of their sport: “You just gotta be who you are, and I think it’s time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call ’em gangs.”

● Commenting on women: “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of pop culture.”

● Commenting on gay people: “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation.” Limbaugh also equated the push to legalize gay marriage to a supposed “movement to normalize pedophilia” on the left. “What has happened to gay marriage?” he said. “It’s become normal. . . . Don’t pooh-pooh it.”

Voice of conservatism, moralistic patriot and courageous lion against liberalism? Or a demagogic and dominating ?

“Winner” would not be my word of choice. Let’s leave it at that.

Don't read this.

Rush Limbaugh was conservative radio's 'Happy Warrior.' That's what liberals don't understand.

Obituary

Deborah “Debby” Ann Orr (Barnes), age 71, of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully, at home, in her sleep on August 16, 2020.

Debby was born the oldest child of Donald and Dorothea Barnes of Butler, Kentucky. After deciding to leave her hometown, Debby thought she would never find a place as beautiful as the Kentucky countryside; that is until she discovered Walton County and fell in love with the natural landscape of Northwest Florida. Debby followed her passion of art and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art from the University of West Florida.

Deborah Orr leaves behind a legacy as an extraordinary potter with her specialty being creating bowls crafted from natural elements and finishing in a high-fire kiln. Debby not only loved making her art, she loved teaching her craft to others and giving back to her community. She was a beloved schoolteacher for the Walton and Okaloosa County School District and taught private classes at her personal art studio on her property.

She is preceded in death by her father, Donald R. Barnes (1963); and mother, Dorothea G. Barnes (2016).

Debby is survived by her three sons, Ryan Orr, Evan Orr (Grace), and William Orr (Brittnie); daughter, Elizabeth Orr (Tyson); six grandchildren, Seth, Blake, Harrison, Liam, Castle, Lucy; sister, Kimberly Barnes-O’Connor; and her two dogs, Peter Fredrick, and Darla Ann.

“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” ~ John Lennon

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, September 1 at 10AM at Point Washington Cemetery.

Arrangements and services are under the direction of Davis-Watkins Funeral Home and Crematory of DeFuniak Springs, Florida.
 
I remember this poster from way back as well. It's always sad when when an rpeep passes on. May she RIP.

I was genuinely asking for your list.  It was not a set up for a "Gotcha" or anything else. 

You responded.  Your response spoke for itself.  I did not mock you or take exception to anything you said.

While we generally disagree with each other, I don't take you as someone who pretends to be something they are not.

You have my respect for that.

When you look at things from the perspective of open hostility to all things repub, conservative and whatnot and his very partisan posting history in context, it does make sense, to me.

If the previous were not true, I would have made a different conclusion and likely said nothing about this.  I felt intimidated into not posting anything about Limbaugh because it would be taken and reacted to as insensitivity and hostility towards the community and the deceased with the timing involved.  That is the motive I perceived.

ymmv ...
 

I'm with Scott: wtf?
