          Sad, but I was thinking the same thing!
          "Tonight I wash my hands of you
          You set the bar I could not live up to
          Tonight the light is breaking through
          So thank you very little and send me postcards from hell"

            These things always happen in 3's. It's scary.

            I started keeping track at http://www.celebritydeathpool.com that summer a few years ago when the celebs were dropping like flies.

              He played Karl Kolchak in The Night Stalker films by Dan Curtis and the same character in the TV series.

                And DW, since we discussed "Murphy Brown" in another thread, it's interesting to note that McGavin won an emmy for acting in the role of Murphy's father.

                Another great one lost, indeed.
                God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                  The Old Man has gone to that "Major Award" in the sky.

                    I think we've gone well beyond the "happens in threes" thing lately. We seem to be losing 3 a week sometimes. RIP Mr. Mr. McGavin. You entertained us well over the years.
