Well, THAT sucks!

Wizbang reports that Rodney Dangerfield has gone to the great green room in the sky. What Shakespeare or the Bible was to an earlier generation, Caddyshack was to mine. He will be missed.

Meanwhile, The Commissar reports that Gordo Cooper, the last of the Mercury Astronauts to go into orbit, and who was so memorably portrayed by the pre-Meg Ryan Dennis Quaid in The Right Stuff, has recently died.

I guess they can finally put his picture up behind the bar at The Happy Hunting Grounds. (Secret Message to Rocket Jones: what was the name of the bar out in the desert in The Right Stuff?)
