Herb Kelleher, co-founder of Southwest Airlines:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/03/o...ies-at-87.html

Herb Kelleher, who turned conventional airline industry wisdom on its head by combining low fares with high standards of customer service to build Southwest Airlines into one of the nation’s most successful and admired companies, died on Thursday. He was 87.

The airline announced his death on Twitter. It did not say where he died or give a cause. Southwest is based in Dallas, and Mr. Kelleher had a home there.

Juan Valdez (Carlos Sánchez) has died:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/09/obituaries/carlos-sanchez-dead.html



Carlos Sánchez, who for nearly four decades played Juan Valdez, the embodiment of Colombian coffee and one of the most recognizable pitchmen in the world, died on Dec. 29 in Medellín. He was 83.

His death was confirmed in an email from Colombia’s National Federation of Coffee Growers, which did not specify the cause.

Mr. Sánchez first donned Valdez’s signature wide-brimmed hat in 1969. He took over for Jose F. Duval, a Cuban actor who had played the character since it was created by the New York advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach in 1959.

Mr. Sánchez was Colombian and grew coffee as a youth before turning to painting and acting. As Valdez, an indefatigable farmer with a warm expression, a lush mustache and a mule named Conchita, he became an avatar for the farmers who harvested Colombia’s coffee beans and a positive depiction of a country that was often equated with terrorism and drug trafficking.

Verna Bloom was in Animal House, High Plains Drifter, last temptation of Christ among other things. Sad to see she died of dementia related issues, must be a horrible way to go...

Re: Zod's feelgood obituary thread

Jack Bogle, founder of Vanguard and the guy who made it likely for middle-class Americans to be successful in the stock market, died at 85. He invented the low-cost index fund. Before he did that, it was a lot more profitable to broker stocks. Instead, people like me get more money in my pocket, with compounding.

Float on Larry Cunningham!
“Cancer! And my name is Larry.” R.I.P. Larry Cunningham of the Floaters (1951 – 2019)

We all remember “Float On” by the Floaters, that four- (and sometimes five)-man group out of Northeast Detroit who wowed us with one of the smoothest songs in soul music history.

It was one of the cheesiest love ballads in a decade full of cheese (the ‘70s). Never before or since had a song’s sole premise been to feature four guys with come-on lines built around their zodiac signs and what they liked in a woman.

Or maybe more accurately, there had never been come-on lines so preposterous and corny, yet so irresistible and endearing as the four that each member of the Floaters put down on wax in 1977’s unlikely smash single “Float On.”

“Float On” by the Floaters featured those smooth cats Ralph the Aquarius, Charles the Libra, Paul the Leo, and then…

“Cancer! and my name is Larry.”

Larry was Larry Cunningham, one of the group’s founders who passed away in Arizona last week after a long undisclosed illness. He was 67.

“Take my hand, let me take you to Loveland. Let me show you how sweet it could be-eee. Sharing your love with Larry, listen!”

“Float, Float on!”

Re: Zod's feelgood obituary thread

the creator of the Haynes repair manuals for shade tree mechanics has passed away. I've had a few copies of this for various vehicles and am indebted to him for his genuis long before we could find this stuff on the interweb.

Haynes ManualsLike Page
· It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the famous Haynes Manual, founder of the Haynes Publishing Group PLC and the Haynes International Motor Museum. John passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on the evening of Friday 8th February, aged 80, after a short illness. John was a kind, generous, loving and devoted husband, brother, father and grandfather, who will be missed enormously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Annette, his brother David and sister Mary, his sons J and Chris and their families.

Haynes manuals, and especially their motorcycle counterpart, Clymer manuals, were sooooo helpful to me.

RIP John Haynes

Conspiracy Theorist And Frequent Presidential Candidate Lyndon LaRouche Dies At 96

Lyndon LaRouche speaks at a press conference in Washington, D.C. in 1988. He ran for president eight times (once from prison).
Joel Richardson/The Washington Post/Getty Images
Longtime conspiracy theorist and perennial presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche died on Tuesday at age 96, his organization said in a statement.LaRouche ran for president eight times from 1976 through 2004, running first with the now-defunct U.S. Labor Party and later as a Democrat. His philosophies varied over time, beginning with the far left and then swerving to the far right. Critics accused him of invoking anti-Semitic, racist or homophobic themes. He was prolific in his output of writings and speeches that frequently involved economics. He advocated "a just new world economic order" and imagined that world events were controlled by elites.

Lyndon LaRouche advocated quarantine for people with HIV. He was an asshole of the first order and the planet is better off without him.

Lyndon LaRouche said that the Eskimos put their elderly on icebergs and pushed them out to sea, and he approved of the idea for Americans. That was in 1976, before he created his cult. I think it was in 1984 that his culties had tables set up all around campus.

There is nothing good to say about him.

I used to enjoy his show and segments on TV. He was like the guy on our side fighting against the retailers tricks.

Don Newcombe pitched for 10 seasons, mostly for the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers, winning both the Cy Young and National League Most Valuable Player awards in 1956. He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1949.
