    He's 76 and in ICU for the flu.

    Probably no big deal, but man, the cnn.com story reads like an obit, complete with 20-photo slideshow.

    It's a bit much for what should be a blurb at the most.

    Com'on KJIM. It's cable. If they got the pictures, they run the pictures.

    Hated him when he stole Loni Anderson away from me, but I've gotten over it.

    In fairness, one of the celeb hospital stool pigeons may have tweeted or phoned he's in really bad shape. But if he is, the stoolie should've gone to TMZ, not CNN.
    PS: When I was starting out at the Phoenix, I interviewed Burt when he was in Boston doing the extremely mediocre "Starting Over" with Jill Clayburgh. He was a very good interview considering he was talking to some punk alternative journalist, and I liked him.

    Stroker Ace was born to race, ... just not born to handle the flu.

    Eddie Adams, Doctor, I got a feeling that behind those jeans inside my lungs is something wonderful terrible just waiting to get out.
