Deaths in the News

  • The owner of the Segway company accidentally rode his Segway off a cliff near his English estate on Sunday. I won't pick on the man, Jim Heselden, because he seems like he was a good guy ("one of Britain’s leading philanthropists"), but I sometimes I wish all Segway owners would just ride those stupid things off cliffs.
  • Jacksonville, FL gym teacher Leonard Skinner, whose name inspired the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd, died in his sleep at age 77 last Monday. Sadly, as the Alabama Ass Whuppin' blog points out, he outlived most members of that ill-fated band.
