A couple of obituaries this morning...WWII fighter ace Joe Foss has died at 87. Foss received the Congressional the Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart while a Marine fighter pilot active in the Guadalcanal campaign. He went on to be elected governeor of South Dakota.
In other sad news, character actor Royce Applegate, whom you might remember from such films as Gettysburg, Splash, and O Brother Where Art Thou?, died New Year's Day in a fire in his Hollywood home. He was 63. The same story informed me that actress Teresa Graves (Get Christie Love!, which I got on a cheapo DVD) also died in a house fire in October of last year.
