    My gosh, it seems like so many celebrities have passed recently.

    TMZ is reporting that "Family Circus" creator Bill Keane passed yesterday. 'Family Circus' Cartoonist Bil Keane -- Dead at 89 | TMZ.com
    I grew up reading "Family Circus." It seems like we always had at least one of his comics on the fridge.

    Actually, Mr. Rooney's friend was resuscitated and is in ICU at a New York hospital.

    I just saw they updated the story on TMZ. Apparently, Andy Rooney's son told the memorial guests that the man had died. I'm glad they were able to revive him. It must have been horribly upsetting and scary.

    Harry Morgan has passed away He lived a nice long life, but I'm still so sad. He was on my father's favorite show. I grew up watching him on M*A*S*H.

    I loved watching him on tv over the years! He had a distinctive manner and style which I enjoyed watching. Sad to see him go.

    I couldn't wait each week for M*A*S*H. He fit his character very well. Wow, 96 years of life! RIP Harry Morgan.
