RIP Charles Krauthammer

Image result for charles krauthammer

Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, has died at 68 years of age.

He was a towering figure in the journalistic community and equally so in conservative circles. Perhaps the only person who could hang with Mr. Krauthammer in a conversation regarding politics, policy or baseball–which was most important to him–is George Will.

I remember seeing Charles Krauthammer as I was preparing to board a plane in D.C. The famed commentator sped by as he quickly departed from his flight into America’s political capital. And even though there was no opportunity for a personal introduction or moment to thank him for his reasoned yet pointed perspectives, just seeing him in-person was special and memorable.

RIP Charles Krauthammer.

A Mind Trip Unlike Any Other

The man’s name was Robin Williams. The man’s occupation was making people laugh. And the formula for comedy is tragedy plus time.

We owe Robin Williams, the man who made us laugh out loud and cry like no other comic (Mrs. Doubtfire, dears), to take the time to hear and understand his personal tragedy that, evidently, was a parallel force pulling at the imaginative, faster-than-lightning comedic genius.

This brand new trailer for the brand new HBO documentary ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ will make us laugh and make us cry. Hopefully, HBO has timed the release date of Monday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET correctly so audiences can appreciate both emotions separately and as one.

One final picture of the art form known as Robin Williams.

RIP Margot Kidder

Running a website/blog called Jimmy’s Daily Planet, the following news is tough to write and process.

Actress Margot Kidder died this past Sunday in Montana at the age of 69. Like her iconic ‘Superman’ co-star, Christopher Reeve, Ms. Kidder delivered an equally iconic performance that elevated her as the greatest Lois Lane in the storied superhero saga.

RIP Margot Kidder. 

RIP Earle Bruce

Former head football coach of The Ohio State Buckeyes from 1979-1987, the 87-year-old Earle Bruce, has died.

There’s so much to say about Mr. Bruce–on and off the gridiron–but at this reflective moment, there’s one memory that rises above the rest.

There are few greater honors as a Buckeye than to dot the “i” in Script Ohio in the Horseshoe back in 2016. And Mr. Bruce was provided that unforgettable opportunity.

RIP Earle Bruce.
