Two pages deep and only 7 days into the year. It's shaping up to be a rough one if that's any indication.

Deezer D released four Christian rap albums, appeared in Romy & Michele's High School Reunion and played Nurse Malik McGrath on 190 episodes of NBC's 1994-2009 medical drama series ER.


That one's also a bummer. I used to watch ER every week with my mom. It's impossible not to remember him if you were a fan of that show.

Tommy Lasorda. I met him once and got his autograph on a baseball. I also got the autograph of his wife Jo. I second trhat one. I am happy for him that before he died he finally got to see the Dodgers win their first championship since 1988.

Ed Bruce had 20 top-40 country hits, 1975-86, including Nights, After All, My First Taste Of Texas, Ever Never Lovin' You and the number one You're The Best Break This Old Heart Ever Had. In January 1976 he had a #15 hit with Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys, which he had co-written with his wife Patsy. The song became a number-one hit three years later for Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson.
