They say these things come in threes... I wonder who is next? (although I have to be fatalistic).
First, we lost Maude.
Then we lost Dom DeLuise.
Now I have to wonder, who's next? It seems we're losing an entire generation of entertainers, doesn't it? All the folks I grew up watching. My heart goes out to their family and friends, and to my own children and their generation - who will never experience the wonder of seeing these uber-talented people entertain, except through the wonder of reruns.
