death visits again

Two pretty famous people have died.  Dana Reeve, who became famous as the stalwart wife of paralyzed actor Christopher Reeve, has died of lung cancer.  It seems she never smoked, but got the smoker’s cancer anyway.  Damned shame.  A greay lady; what a damned shame.

10-time baseball All-Star and Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett has also died, from a stroke this weekend.  He led the Minnesota Twins to 2 World Series championships while winning six Gold Gloves.  Friends and family have certainly been concerned for years about Kirby’s weight since he was forced from baseball by glaucoma.  Not to mention his occasionally public skirmishes with women that cast a shadow on his post playing days.  A fine ball player, gone too young.
