Just a few words about Bobby Unser and the Unser family in general. These guys were undoubtedly one of, if not the greatest racing family in history. This family hails from Albuquerque NM, my home town. As the article states Bobby Unser won the Indy 500 three times. Its rare to win the Indy more than once but his brother Al Unser Sr. won it four times and his Nephew Al Unser Jr. won it twice. Nine times these guys won the Indy 500. It is phenomenal. These are good guys. Its sad that our local (SHIT) media on more than one occasion did their best to knock them down a notch or two just because they could. RIP Bobby.....cry:

Rochelle Hager, TikTok star, dead at 31​

The social media personality, known for sharing comedic videos, died after a tree branch fell on her car​

Rochelle Hager, a TikTok star, has died at the age of 31.

Hager died after a tree branch fell on her car on Monday, according to a press release from the Farmington Police Department obtained by Fox News on Tuesday.

The social media star, who frequently posted to the short-form video app under the username @roeurboat3, was in the Maine town of Farmington when the wind was blowing at over 50 mph.

As a result, a limb of a pine tree fell onto the car that Hager was driving.

Police Chief Kenneth Charles spoke with local news outlet, the Press Herald, and said that the social media personality was pronounced dead at the scene after authorities were alerted by a neighbor.

Charles said Hager likely died instantly.

After the tree limb hit the car, it appears that the 2015 Nissan Rogue, Hager was driving, crossed the centerline of the road and came to a stop in the northbound lane.

The tree branch also hit nearby powerlines and snapped a nearby utility pole, according to the outlet.


WTF is ticktock? i've never heard of this guy.

Hager further revealed that, shortly before Hager's death, the couple recently discussed starting a family: "We had picked out a name the night before for a girl."

Apparently, God had other plans! Obviously, he's not fond of sexual deviants who intent to infect innocent children with their gay agenda degeneracy! The piper has been paid and the children are a tiny bit safer!

These days, it's well-nigh impossible to find out if "their child" was adopted or actually theirs.

Just pushing the Narrative - which is to confuse facts and science. Deliberate confusion and obfuscation leads to chaos, which is the end-game.

RIP Johnny Crawford, Mark McCain from The Rifleman. Johnny died on April 29th at 75 years of age. He’d been suffering from Alzheimer’s and it had progressed to the point he needed full time care. I was a big Rifleman fan, when I was a kid. I mentioned in an earlier post that it’s surprising when someone you remember as a kid dies from something like Alzheimer’s disease and old age.

How can it have a child with a woman then? Or perhaps thats why God killed it. So that it can't pollute the population with it's caustic ideology.
they take orphans and indoctrinate them into their gay lifestyle.....one more degenerate dead who can no longer threaten the children, thank God

Charles Grodin Dead at 86. Bone cancer
From the AP story of his death:

With bone-dry understatement, Grodin could steal entire scenes with just a look. His commitment, whether acting across De Niro or Miss Piggy, was unsurpassed.

Miss Piggy sent flowers and a Mass card!

I don’t know why, really, but I never liked Grodin. I never disliked him, either. He was uninteresting.

Grodin, Matthau and Ackroyd were a hoot in this very underrated overlooked flick.

an admitted racist, when he's black, is a professional, here's millions...


"Remembering Paul Mooney — The Comic Who Never Sold His Soul" (edit: he never became an Uncle Tom, that's black vernacular)

"Mooney was a “race man” and was unapologetic about it. His unwavering devotion to Black culture and Black people bequeaths to us a legacy that must be protected and upheld."

but a white comic who simply mentions the word ****** in the process of making a larger point, is a bum...lose the career Bum

Never was a big Love Boat fan,
Same here. And there was "Fantasy Island". I did not get into those shows, but the rest of the family made them part of the background noise I had to put up with. I never did find out how Khan had a working island-sized and open air holodeck in the 20th century.

BBC Radio Newcastle presenter Lisa Shaw died aged 44 after suffering blood clots following Covid AstraZeneca jab, her family reveal​

  • Lisa Shaw developed 'severe' headaches after having the jab and fell seriously ill
  • The 44-year-old died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday
  • People under 40 are being offered an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine following reports of extremely rare blood clots on the brain
By HENRY MARTIN FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 12:14 EDT, 27 May 2021

An award-winning BBC radio presenter died in hospital after suffering blood clots after she received the AstraZeneca vaccine, her family have revealed.

Lisa Shaw, who worked for BBC Newcastle, developed 'severe' headaches a week after having the jab and fell seriously ill a few days later, relatives said in a statement.

Ms Shaw, 44, died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday afternoon having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding.

A fact-of-death certificate lists the vaccine as one of the possible factors, but document does not determine a cause of death. It is expected that will only be released following an inquest into her death.

The presenter was not known to have any underlying health problems and her death came as a devastating shock to family and colleagues.

More than 330 cases of a rare clotting disorder have been spotted among 24.2million recipients of the jab — or around one in every 75,000 people. Fifty-eight patients have died.

The 44-year-old died at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, on Friday afternoon having been treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding.

Another dead female "journalist."

Of the kind who led us to where we are. How am I sure? She worked for BBC...which has completely upended itself in forty years, now being up there with CNNBS and MSLSD, as one more source of news, distorted.

Fuggher. Live by the sword, die by the sword. I don't need to ask about her kids; I'd bet a month's income she has none. Probably has a wife somewhere...driving a lorry...

Hooked on a feeling!

Goodbye BJ, you gave us some great tunes! RIP
I didn't realize he was that young.

Cripes, I was in middle school when he was on a roll. It was, to us, old-people's music - "Easy Listening" it was called, back then. He's have been mid-twenties. That's young to be shooting for that market.

Gavin MacLeod, ‘Love Boat’ Captain and ‘Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Star, Dies at 90​

Gavin MacLeod Dead

BEI/BEI/Shutterstock

Gavin MacLeod, a sitcom veteran who played seaman “Happy” Haines on “McHale’s Navy,” Murray on “Mary Tyler Moore” and the very different, vaguely patrician Captain Stubing on “The Love Boat,” has died. He was 90.

MacLeod’s nephew, Mark See, confirmed his death to Variety. MacLeod died in the early morning on May 29. No cause of death was given, but MacLeod’s health had declined in recent months.

MacLeod played a relatively minor character on ABC hit “McHale’s Navy,” starring Ernest Borgnine, but as newswriter Murray Slaughter, he was certainly one of the stars of “Mary Tyler Moore,” appearing in every one of the classic comedy’s 168 episodes during its 1970-77 run on CBS. Murray was married to Marie (Joyce Bulifant) but was in love with Moore’s Mary Richards. His desk was right next to Mary’s in the WJM newsroom, so MacLeod was frequently in the shot during the sitcom, and Murray, like all the other characters, was richly developed — a hallmark of MTM shows.

MacLeod originally tried out for the part of Lou Grant, which went to Ed Asner, but claimed to be happy that he ended up playing Murray. He also auditioned for the role of Archie Bunker on “All in the Family,” but of reading the script for the first time, he wrote in his memoir, “Immediately I thought, This is not the script for me. The character is too much of a bigot. I can’t say these things.” When Norman Lear called the actor to say that Carroll O’Connor had gotten the part, MacLeod was relieved.

The “Moore” cast — MacLeod, Asner, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Betty White and Georgia Engel (Ted Knight had died in 1986) — reminisced with Moore in 2002 on CBS’ “The Mary Tyler Moore Reunion.”

Asner paid tribute to MacLeod on Twitter, writing: “My heart is broken. Gavin was my brother, my partner in crime (and food) and my comic conspirator. I will see you in a bit Gavin. Tell the gang I will see them in a bit. Betty! It’s just you and me now.”


MacLeod had the great fortune to roll right from one hit show to another in 1977, when “Moore” ended and ABC’s “The Love Boat” began. The hourlong romantic comedy set on a cruise ship ran for 10 years. The actor’s Captain Stubing was known for his signature salute. Even after the end of the voyage in 1987, the actor returned for telepic “The Love Boat: A Valentine Voyage” in 1990 and for the “Reunion” episode of rebooted series “Love Boat: The Next Wave” in 1998.

MacLeod may, indeed, hold a record for consecutive long-running series: He went straight from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (168 episodes) to “The Love Boat” (249 episodes).

The New York Times said in 2010: “Perhaps no actor has embraced a signature role the way Mr. MacLeod has with Captain Stubing. Since ‘The Love Boat’ went off the air, he has been a spokesman for Princess Cruises.”

In 1997, the actor joined the rest of “The Love Boat” cast on “Oprah” in what was the first full cast appearance since the show was cancelled. Another cast reunion occurred in 2013 on “The Talk.”

MacLeod was born Allan George See in Mount Kisco, N.Y. His mother worked for Reader’s Digest, while his father was an electrician who was part Chippewa. He grew up in Pleasantville, N.Y., and went to Ithaca College, where he studied acting and graduated in 1952. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, he moved to New York City and worked at Radio City Music Hall as an usher and elevator operator while seeking work as an actor. During this time he changed his name.

After a few uncredited film roles, MacLeod made his credited bigscreen debut in the 1958 Susan Hayward vehicle “I Want to Live,” playing a police lieutenant, then played a G.I. in Gregory Peck starrer “Pork Chop Hill” the next year. His supporting role in Blake Edwards’ WWII comedy “Operation Petticoat,” starring Cary Grant and Tony Curtis and focusing on the chaotic goings on aboard a submarine, gave the young actor a flavor of what he would be doing a few years later on “McHale’s Navy.” In the meantime he appeared in the 1960 thriller “Twelve Hours to Kill,” which starred future “I Dream of Jeannie” star Barbara Eden; Blake Edwards’ musical comedy “High Time,” starring Bing Crosby and Fabian; and the critically hailed but now forgotten Korean War film “War Hunt.” He also did a boatload of guest appearances on TV before his stint on “McHale’s Navy.”

MacLeod left “McHale’s Navy” in order to be able to appear in a supporting role in the excellent period adventure film “The Sand Pebbles,” starring Steve McQueen, and he appeared in a number of other films throughout the decade: “A Man Called Gannon” and Blake Edwards’ Peter Sellers comedy “The Party” in 1968; “The Thousand Plane Raid,” “The Comic” and “The Intruders” in 1969; and, in 1970, the World War II caper film “Kelly’s Heroes,” in which he played Moriarty, Oddball’s machine-gunner and mechanic.

In the meantime he was guesting on both dramas (“Perry Mason,” “Ben Casey,” “Ironside,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “The Big Valley”) and comedies (“The Andy Griffith Show,” “My Favorite Martian,” “Hogan’s Heroes”). In December 1961, he guested on “The Dick Van Dyke Show” in what was his first time working with Mary Tyler Moore.

After his years on “Mary Tyler Moore” and “The Love Boat,” MacLeod did not work on a steady basis — he did not have to.

He made an impression, however, in a 2000 episode of HBO prison drama “Oz” in which he played the Roman Catholic Cardinal Frances Abgott, with whom Rita Moreno’s nun Sister Pete discusses leaving the order. The actor had assumed a certain gravitas as Captain Stubing, even amid the silliness of “The Love Boat,” that made this role possible in a way that it couldn’t have been before.

In the 2000s MacLeod also guested on series including “The King of Queens,” “JAG,” “Touched by an Angel” and “That ’70s Show.”

MacLeod, who had appeared on Broadway in 1962 in “The Captains and the Kings,” also returned to stage work after “The Love Boat.” He toured with Michael Learned of “The Waltons” in A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” and he appeared in musicals such as “Gigi” and “Copacabana” between 1997 and 2003. At a concert in 2008, he conducted the Colorado Symphony in Denver.

MacLeod was first married, from 1955-1972, to Joan Devore, with whom he had two sons and two daughters.

He married actress Patti Kendig in 1974. They divorced in 1982 but remarried in 1985.

During the mid-1980s, MacLeod and his second wife became Evangelical Christians, and the pair credited the religion for reuniting them. He wrote about it in his 1987 book “Back on Course, the Remarkable Story of a Divorce That Ended in Remarriage.” He and Kendig appeared in the Christian big-screen time-travel epic “Time Changer,” along with Hal Linden, in 2002, and he played the title role in the 2008 Christian film “The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.”

His memoir “This Is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith & Life,” was published in 2013.

He is survived by Kendig and four children by Devore.

Lil Loaded, '6Locc 6A6y' rapper, dead at age 20​

By Joe Sutton and Hannah Sarisohn, CNN 5 hrs ago

Texas rapper Lil Loaded, 20, has died, his attorney Ashkan Mehryari told CNN.

"Sadly, I can confirm Mr. Robertson passed away as a result of a reported suicide," Mehryari wrote in an email to CNN on Tuesday.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner's office did not yet have a cause or manner of death when contacted by CNN.
Lil Loaded, whose real name is Dashawn Robertson, was facing a manslaughter charge for a fatal shooting last October, court records show.
"While pending charges as serious as Mr. Robertson's can be exceedingly stressful, and it certainly may have contributed to this tragic outcome, I believe he was in a good place mentally with regard to the charges and our upcoming court date," Mehryari said, adding Robertson's death came as a "complete shock."
Robertson's song '6Locc 6A6y' was certified gold just last week by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Hairy Legs Biden should declare a week of mourning and fly all flags half staff. Maybe establish a national holiday.
