He was also from Gary, Indiana.

Quote:
He was the son of a Czech mother and a Serbian father, and worked for a time in the steel mills of Gary, Indiana, after dropping out of college.


I am sure he was one of Gary Indianas' favorite sons as well.

He's one of those people that when they die you think "I thought he died 15 years ago"

Karl Malden was a pretty cool dude, he didnt get caught up in all the Hollywood hype and was one damn good actor.

I think that Walter Cronkite is next Sad

Oh NO! It was Mrs. Slocombe! What'll happen to her pussy now?


http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090702/people_nm/us_britain_sugden






Quote:
LONDON (Reuters) – British actress Mollie Sugden, best-known for her role as Mrs Slocombe in the television comedy series "Are You Being Served?," has died at the age of 86.

Her agent Joan Reddin told newspapers Sugden died on Wednesday after a long illness. "She was a lovely, lovely person. She was a great professional," Reddin said.

With her hair highly coiffed and referring frequently to her "pussy," Sugden played the bossy Mrs Slocombe throughout the run of the BBC's innuendo-laden Are You Being Served? between 1972 and 1985.

Re-runs of the show in the United States in the 1990s gained her a new audience overseas.

"She was great fun, a very good actress, very versatile. She could play serious stuff and comedy," said Frank Thornton, who played opposite Sugden in the series as the stuffy floorwalker Captain Peacock.

"It was a very happy show to work on -- you can't play comedy with people you dislike," he told BBC television.

Mark Freeland, head of BBC comedy, said she was one of television's iconic funny women.

"Her daftly enormous purple rinse and never-to-be-forgotten catchphrase are the stuff of comedy legend," he said.

Sugden had also found success in the BBC TV comedy series "The Liver Birds" and played an occasional role as pub landlady Nellie Harvey in the long-running ITV soap opera "Coronation Street."

I think Captain Peacock (Frank Thornton) must be the last left standing.

Not to defend Robert McNamara or anything, but he was one of the very first American Auto execs who actually cared about safety and did something about it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifeguard_%28Automobile_safety%29

At Ford:

http://www.americanheritage.com/articles/magazine/it/2007/1/2007_1_29.shtml

Quote:
He did have a vision for automobiles, but it had nothing to do with chrome or horsepower or tailfins. Instead he was absorbed by such novel concepts as safety, fuel economy, and basic utility. He advocated qualities that 20 years later would make Japanese carmakers big powers in the United States.

“He wanted small cars way back then,” recalls Lee Iacocca, who as a young man worked under McNamara. “He wanted pollution controls. I didn’t know what he meant when he talked about emissions in the 1950s. He said we had to start worrying about pollutants. People didn’t know what the hell the ecology was.”
