    I say this all the time.. and not just for famous entertainers… There are “everyday folk”, too, who also have shared their talents with us all in our everyday lives, in one way or another, and who aren’t “media darlings”… and who barely get a mention, or a brief “hmm…” before people move on, that is, in comparison to the “24 hr. news cycles” about people we don’t personally know, but seem to get a lot of attention..– And too, when it comes to celebrities, specifically, I’ve also seen how some celebs get just a brief mention, but certain other ones get a whole “parade”, almost, in all the papers, mags and TV networks ..

    That’s why I’m not having a funeral. Anyone with something nice to say about me can say it while I can still hear it!

    Shoot, I’m just glad no one in programming is saying, “Lauren WHO?” (Too many of my students have a prejudice against anything in black-and-white…)

    Gil, I am assuming you are familiar with the Shel Silverstein Lyric: “Nashville is rough on the living, but she sure speaks well of the dead”It was performed by Bobby Bare, Jerry Reed, Mel Tillis and Waylon Jennings. That song popped into my head as I read today’s strip.

    Good thought. I recall when baseball manager Leo Durocher made the Hal of Fame posthumously. I also recall thinking, Leo was 89 when he died, having lived that long why wasn’t he enshrined while he was still alive.

    Just like Cubs great Ron Santo getting in the Hall of Fame – the year after he’d died!

    What drives me crazy, and most of everyone who comment here that program directors schedule the tributes opposite each other.
