    Apparently, this story was put on Yahoo! only two minutes ago. Terrible news to start to start Christmas.

    This sucks. I think I will watch the Blues Brothers movie at some point on Christmas Day. I might even try to watch Blues Brothers 2000 ... maybe.

    RIP

    Wow, I knew he was getting pretty old, but I didn't expect this.

    Simply FYI, but Brown joins W.C. Fields, Charlie Chaplin and Dean Martin as celebrities who passed away on Christmas Day. And Billy Martin also if you want to throw sports figures in the mix.
