That's tragic.

Maybe so, but how is it notable?

I don't agree! I'm just lazy to type.

Good riddance to that self-hating Jew. He converted to Catholicism and unlike most American conservatives nowadays, he was anti-Israel.

I liked her in The Ramen Girl. I don't think I've seen any of her other movies.

The Uncertainty Principle. It proves we can't ever really know... what's going on. So it shouldn't bother you. Not being able to figure anything out. Although you will be responsible for this on the mid-term. - "A Serious Man"

Ken Ober, MTV host of an era past...

http://www.cnn.com/2...ober/index.html

Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Ken Ober, whose MTV game show "Remote Control" was among the network's first forays into non-music programming, has died at age 52, his agent said Monday. Ober hosted five seasons of "Remote Control," a pop-culture quiz show that featured contestants strapped into easy chairs to answer questions from categories such as "Dead or Canadian?" The show first aired in 1987 and helped launch the careers of comedians Adam Sandler, Denis Leary and Colin Quinn, who was the program's announcer.

Ober later moved behind the camera as a producer of the Comedy Central program "Mind of Mencia" and the CBS comedy "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

Ober's agent, Mark Measures, said Ober was found dead at his home in Los Angeles. No cause of death was immediately known.


My poor SO still thinks that a Batya is a what, and not a who.
