First came news that the man who made my childhood Saturday mornings decidedly more funky, Soul Train's Don Cornelius, had died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Then came the news that Mike Kelley, multi-media artist and founding member of the seminal pre-punk band Destroy All Monsters had passed away, also of an apparent suicide.
Next came the story that veteran soap actor Nick Santino had taken his life last week, unable to cope with the grief of having been forced to put down his beloved pit bull, Rocco.
In other news, RedState editor Erick Erickson recently said the use of a tazer on an unarmed civil disobedient at Occupy DC was "made of awesome."
Sigh... Do something decent for somebody today, would ya? Seriously. Just be kind.
Except to Erick. Erick is an asshole.
