You know we hear horrible stories every day and I guess I get numb to alot as a protetive device,Read More I'm sure. But this one really hit me. All those kids and the adults on a mission to improve their lives or the lives of others. Made me so sad. And this couple sounds so kind and lovely. Thank you for sharing it. Although it hurts.

My son went on a school trip to SF and is coming home today. I heard about the crash the first timeRead More it was broadcast and was worried sick. This tragedy is very heart wrenching for a parent like me and as a person. My prayers go out to those that lost their lives & their families as well as to those that were directly affected by the accident.

Tracy, I'm with you. Obviously, being a journalist, there are terrible stories everyday. But thisRead More one cuts through bone. It's just horrific in every way and has ties to people up and down the state, with LA County, Riverside County and Orange County hit hard.

Unfortunately, there's trouble brewing in his family, which is feuding over where to bury the bodyRead More http://studiocity.patch.com/groups/around-town/p/mikey-rooneys-family-feuding-where-to-bury-the-body

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.

If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.
GreenInOC February 13, 2014 at 08:21 am
@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

Got the pleasure of meeting Huell at a UC Davis fund raiser. He was very nice and so funny. We haveRead More a picture we took with him and also he signed a t-shirt we have framed. Almost all our trips are because of him. He helped us learn and love California. RIP Huell.
joebanana March 3, 2013 at 02:55 am
Wow, Huell is so cool. So sad to hear the tragic news, he'll be greatly missed. There will never beRead More anybody as cool as Huell. I hope KCET will keep playing reruns.

One of our family treasures. My daughter, Molly, was unimpressed, however, and did a greatRead More impersonation of his "Hah, Ahm Hoowell Howser, etc." which in turn became a special memory for me. We promise ourselves to visit at least one of his special places.

Downtown's Grand Performances presented David "conversation" with Alan Warner at theRead More California Plaza a few summers ago. Glad I got a chance to see this and to hear David explain he had no reason to write a song about San Jose. He "just wanted to."

Margot devoted her life to making things better for us all. I hope that some part of the SM NationalRead More Recreation area can be named after her so future generations will know who left this magnificent legacy.
J. Flo August 9, 2012 at 02:52 pm
I so agree with you! I called her son after she passed, I never met Margot, and let him know thatRead More for so many people now and forever - she is a role model! God bless her and those like her, who so selflessly fight the good, hard and loving effort of preserving nature.

She used my Dad's office as her dressing room when she was shooting on location at Whittier College.Read More She asked to meet him so she could thank him personally for giving up his office. He was really blown away -- said she was incredibly gracious. I remember him also commenting on how tiny she was and on her incredible eyes. Clearly a Movie Star of the variety we just don't have anymore. --David Nichols

I love all of these personal Elizabeth Taylor stories!

Around 1984 I was working as a bartender in the American Airline VIP lounge at LAX when her flightRead More was delayed for several hours. Both she and the two people traveling with her were very kind and polite. Seeing how beautiful she was up close was really something beauty but her inner beauty seemed to radiate. Her attire was simply elegant and she was wearing that incredible Richard Burton rock.
