Gary Coleman, Ali Woodson, Dennis Hopper, Rue McClanahan

I honestly don't want to dwell on the passing of these artists. Yeah I know it would be better for blog traffic to do individual posts, but dammit I'm just not in the mood right now to think "business". Some amazing talent has left this side of the universe in the past week, so this is not a business as usual blog post for me.

Gary Coleman, Ali "Ollie" Woodson, Dennis Hopper, and the one that saddens me most, Rue McClanahan. I'm a huge "Golden Girls" fan and whenever my world gets a little too serious, Blanche Devereaux and the girls never fail to produce a smile in a hardened face and dark spirit. Talk about wonderful casting and equally wonderful performances. That kind of chemistry on and off set is rare in this business. "Thank you for being a friend," Rue McClanahan. Your southern charm, sexy senior citizen swagger will always be remembered, not just on "Golden Girls" but on other shows and films as well.

And a sincere thank you to each of these entertainers mentioned for lending to us their amazing gifts. May you all rest in peace!
