You know, I always thought that he was younger for some reason. He will be missed.

Oh, man! Someone referred to this in an email and I forgot to see if it was true.

What a shame.

Don't know if he was in a wheelchair.

Man, now I feel like seeing "Popeye".

I really liked that movie as a kid, too.

I was shocked when I learned that Robert Altman had a hand in it. I never would have guessed that. It's earned a permanent place in the soft spot in me heart.

Uck uck uck uck uck uck.

What a bummer. Everyone was saying that the reason Prairie Home Companion was getting such glowing reviews from the critics was because he didn't have long. I guess that was truer than I expected.

We was indeed in a wheelchair for most of PHC. Rumor was that PT Anderson help out. (I'm gonna have to say that Ed Lachman DP wasn't looking much better.)

RIP. He will be missed.
