He was my first crush. I once I set my alarm for 3 a.m. to watch "I Walk the Line," where he played a back-woods sheriff who falls in love with that slut Tuesday Weld.
My friend called on Sunday to offer her condolences.
"Jan," I said, shaking my head. "He was nearly 90 but I still would have slept with him."
"I know," she said. "I know."
