R.I.P. Dom DeLuise  
Sad to know that Dom DeLuise has passed away. He died in his sleep last night after a long illness, at age 75.

He was one of the greats, a comedian and actor that was instantly recognizable and loved by pretty much everyone. On top of that, you may not have know that he was a helluva chef, too.

Damn. You brought tears of laughter to my eyes on way too many occasions to count, sir, and you'll be heartily missed.

I am glad to hear he did pass in his sleep. I saw an interview once where he said that was how he wanted to go. I am sad to hear he had been ill for a long time before that though. Being ill is dreadful and torturous.

He was a great man. If you did not know that he was a great chef, you weren't paying enough attention as it came up a LOT in the things he did as himself. He brought great joy to me on many occasions and will continue to do so for the rest of my life, thanks to the joy of dvds. He will, indeed, be missed.

Damn, and we were just talking about him the other day when we watched an old Carson that he was on with some egg trick.

Sucks man.
