Louisiana native, author Ernest Gaines died today at age 86. He has been one of my favorite authors all my grown up life. He was actually born on a plantation not far from the town I was born in. I met him in person at a book signing for his novel “A Lesson Before Dying”. He took the time to talk with each of us hometown folks. An amazing man and great loss to the literary world.

@Jayzelady….  May he rest in peace.  It is always sad to loose a favorite author.  I could have gone to a book signing by Edward Abbey but for some reason or other, I talked myself out of going.  Been kicking myself ever since.

After his death, he was buried as he had requested: in a sleeping bag, without embalming fluid or casket.

During the half century since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, you may have heard about a few conspiracy theories. ::)

Decades of investigations, hearings, documents, records, books and interviews have failed to satisfy conspiracy theorists with a definitive answer to The Question: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone when he shot the President?

I would that think that "Who Shot JFK??" is THE unanswered question of the last Century.

Like Epstein, he didn't kill himself.

Too soon?
Eh, nevermind...

Two weeks ago, Robert Freeman, the photographer famous for the Beatles album covers up through Rubber Soul died.

That famous With the Beatles/Meet the Beatles silhouette photo was actually taken in a hallway not a portrait studio like it appears to be.  He obviously pushed the film but still... Mind blown.

Star Trek writer DC Fontana.  She was writing for the original series and had to hide the fact that she was female by using her initials...
