So I just found out tonight that Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes had pretty much just finished filming a movie together, where they were both in lead roles, when they died pretty much a day apart.

Sam Jackson is also in the movie, called Soul Men, so people are watching him to make sure he's okay.

Just him? They're not worrying about the crew or supporting actors? Only rich people can get whatever this is? :p

I was going to mention the first one. That's too bad. If I remember, she was hilarious on the Colbert Report.

There have been a hell of a lot of members of Congress dying this two-year session:

Sen. Craig Thomas (R-WY)

Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald (D-CA)

Rep. Charlie Norwood (R-GA)

Rep. JoAnn Davis (R-VA)

Rep. Tom Lantos (D-CA)

Rep. Paul Gilmour (R-OH)

Rep. Stephanie Tubbs-Jones (D-OH)

Rep. Julia Carson (D-IN)

Something even more alarming, to me at least, is that most (Millender-McDonald, Carson, Lantos, Norwood, Davis, and Thomas) died of cancer. I don't know how much of that is a coincidence or a sign of something else. By the way, Tubbs-Jones died of a brain aneuyrsm and Gilmour died from a fall.

I'm not so so surprised.

Congress is old.
