Happy Birthday!

My big brother Tom IV (tehiv) celebrates his 31st birthday today.

On the day Tom was born, Chris Walken celebrated his 31st birthday.

Today Tom is precisely half as old as Chris Walken. I enjoy the symmetry of those two events.

Personally, I won't reach the half-as-old-as-Walken milestone until I'm about to turn 33.

Oh, so anyway, happy birthday, Tom and Chris.

Howard Stern has reported that comedian Mitch Hedberg has died of a drug overdose.

I haven't been able to find any official confirmation. Here's hoping that it ain't so!

In other news, Terri Schiavo's body just died.

Very Sad News

Mitch Hedberg is almost definitely dead.

He used to come to Sacramento all the time. I wish I had seen him when I had the chance.

"An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You would never see an 'escalator temporarily out of order' sign, just 'escalator temporarily stairs, sorry for the convenience.'"

Drugs are bad, kids.
