If it's good enough for Nelson, it's quite good enough for me.

Thomas S. Foley, a courtly congressman from Washington State who as speaker of the House sought to still the chamber’s rising tide of partisan combat before it swept the Democratic majority, and Mr. Foley himself, out of office in 1994, died on Friday at his home in Washington, D.C. He was 84.

Aw, no more Edna Krabappel. Who's gonna teach Bart now? I wonder how they'll write her out.

Also, no one to answer Bob's phone. No more "Hi, Bob."

Racing around to come up behind you again

I only know 1 Lou Reed song. You can probably guess what it is. I like the song a lot though.

Damn. I missed this. Lou? Dead? I hardly knew you.

He really deserves his own thread. but i'm lazy.

You can hear a lot of Billy Joel in that sax at the end.

anywho, great tribute payed by the best of his particular musical click; iggy pop, david bowie, etc.

miley cyrus is quoted in several articles saying she so sad she can't even tweet about it. Hell, she may even know who he is. her dad may know him, but they're certainly in different clicks.

But she wants us to know she cares, so cool
