  1. Obituary thread of notable folk: Jerry Lewis, comedian

    Glenn Campbell, country singer known for "Rhinestone Cowboy",  died August 8th after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.  He died in a Nashville specialty care facility at age 81.  I honestly can't name anything he did apart from this one popular song, but since his diagnosis I have seen his daughter do an interview discussing the struggles of her father and what this disease does to the entire family.  Not that there's a better way than another to die, but this sounded particularly long and brutally slow.  May he RIP.

    Johnathan Demme, film director, died this morning in NYC; he was 73.  He won the academy award for best director in 1992 for 'Silence of the Lambs'.  A perfectly frightening and quotable movie.   As well pop singer John Geils of 'The J. Geils Band' died on April 11th in Massachusetts; he was 71.  His band's songs 'Freeze Frame' and 'Centerfold' were fixtures on FM radio in the early 80s.
