RIP Kirk Douglas

Holy cow! The gent was 103 years old. I had no idea he was still kickin'. He was a straight talking man who said what needed to be said.

I saw that on the news, Gary. That is truly a ripe, old age!

I heard two things on the radio today about Mr. Douglas:

1) He was instrumental in helping break up Hollywood's "Blacklist" era
2) Survived by his wife of 65 years!

Rest easy Mr. Douglas.

Bloody amazing; he was destined to live a long life: He survived a helicopter crash that killed two people and a severe stroke not to mention all the crap of Hollywood.

I will try to remember to search for his old movies so I can watch them.
