Celebrities Smote by a Vindictive God

Veteran News Anchor David Brinkley dies at 82

Oscar Winner Gregory Peck slumbers eternal at 87

The famous are dropping like common houseflies at the end of their one-day adult lifespan.

This is a further illustration of why I avoid the limelight at all costs, choosing to manipulate the Hollywood machine largely from behind the scenes: if you fly too close to the Sun of Stardom with your Wax Wings of Fame, God will strike you down in the prime of your youth, at the height of your powers, in the midst of a hailstorm of mixed metpahor and cliché.

I give Bob Hope two more days.

Me, I'm going to live forever.
