Concerning Aussie: he's with both InLove, Jack Halyard, Aussies parents and his "nanny" or whatever they call it in Australia. The :kitty: delegation's wailing in :kitty: fashion.

Peter Jonathan Aykroyd passed away at the tender age of 66 from septicemia from an internal infection precipitated by an untreated abdominal hernia.

"Who?" you ask?

Y'all might be more familiar with his older brother, Dan Aykroyd, but Peter Aykroyd was involved in "the business" as well, sometimes working with his brother. Here're Peter's filmography and his obituary: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0043839/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5 https://wklh.com/news/030030-peter-aykroyd-emmy-nominated-snl-actor-writer-dead-at-66/

Robert Joseph Dole passed away from cancer at the tender age of 98.

"Who?" you ask?

Senator Bob Dole was a WWII veteran, a retired attorney and a former politician, having represented Kansas in both the House and the Senate from 1969 to 1996. He was also the only candidate who lost as both prospective vice-president and president as far as I know (he ran as Ford's vice-president in 1976, lost the Republican nomination in 1988 to George H. W. Bush, then lost the general election to Bill Clinton in 1996.) Here's his Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Dole

Little-known factoid, his mother invented a product that we've used at some point: Wite-Out (he inherited half of the residuals from that.)

John Earl Madden passed away Wednesday at the tender age of 85 from undisclosed causes.

"Who?" you ask?

Some of you might be familiar with his sports commentary or his annual "video games" while others might recognize him from several commercials he appeared in. Then again, a few of you might remember him from when he successfully coached the Oakland Raiders although he never really played professional football! Here's his filmography https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0534603/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

RJM Corbet might more familiar with Archbishop Desmond Tutu than almost anyone else on IO since the late archbishop emeritus was from South Africa, spending his last few years in his home. Here's his Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmond_Tutu

Peter Bogdanovich, died 6 Jan. He was 82.

After two shots at directing, he made The Last Picture Show, nominated for eight Oscars, won two. Next came What’s Up, Doc?, a massive box-office hit. Paper Moon followed, completing a hat-trick. A commercial and critical success, and notably an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress Tatum O’Neal who, being 10 years old, was the youngest ever recipient of the award.
