WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE BERNIE MAC!??!?

 I found out literally an hour after they announced it on the air. My friend had come home from the dump, and he heard it on the radio. Mac was one hell of an actor and a comedian. He didn't deserve to die so young.

Yeah that Berny Mac thing was depressing.  Wasn't Isaac Hayes his co star in an upcoming film too.  Huhh I sure hope Heath Ledger didn't start up some kinda killing trend.

I'm a little surprised that I didn't hear about either of these until just now. That's awful that Bernie died so (relatively speaking) young. The Bernie Mac Show wasn't amazing, but it was pretty funny, and his other comedy was great. I'll admit I have no idea who Isaac Hayes is though, not that that fact makes his death any less horrible.

Isaac Hayes was the voice of Chef on South Park

He also did the theme song for Shaft, and many other similar tunes.

Oh, then I did hear about his death, just indirectly ("The guy who voiced Chef in South Park died.").

Oh crap...
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,

Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:

What we got here is, failure to communicate.  You see some men, you just can't reach.  So you get what we had here last week.  Which, is the way he wants it.  Well, he gets it.  I don't like it any more than you men.

You'll see, you'll see.

Anyone with the resources and organization to pull it off won't do it before midterm elections.  It takes effort and skill to pull something like that off.  I give him three years.

Suuuuure... I am quite certain the corporate machine has a way of getting rid of unwanted people.

Yeah, they do.  And they're smart enough to realize that Obama being assassinated would lead to a landslide democrat win during the midterms, which would mean it would suck to be them.

Trust me, the people who have the means to kill Obama aren't going to do it stupidly, they will do it when it's most advantageous for them.
