two passings: Mitch Hedberg and Terri Schiavo

Many of you on my flist may not be familiar with the comedian Mitch Hedberg who died yesterday at the age of 37.

bona introduced me to his work. I don't follow many comedians but Mitch always made me laugh even when hearing the joke for the fifth time. :)

My favorite jokes of his are his Gatorade and Home
Depot jokes.

"you don't have to be an athlete to like Gatorade, you just have to be a thirsty dude."

"I went to Home Depot, which was unneccesary. I need to go to Apartment Depot, which is just a big
warehouse with people standing around saying "hey,...I don't have to fix shit"


About Terri Schiavo, I have so many opinions. I can't get too close to cases like this having to make similiar decisions with my mother when I was only 23. There are no winners in this case. Except Terri who is in a far better place now.
