    Do any of you guys remember Dan Akroyd's dead on impression of Tom Snyder from the original SNL cast? His impressions were so good, I sometimes have trouble differentiating the real person from the impression. Bergman, Snyder and Walsh. Sad to see these three go.

    Morris,

    It's been interesting to see on the video obituaries for Tom Snyder, most have shown Dan Ackroyd's dead-on impersonation... which is perfectly cool, because, for many folks, that's all they know of Tom Snyder. (More folks probably watched SNL back in its heyday than viewed "Tomorrow" on a regular basis.)

    Interesting to hear today of the passing of yet another art-house movie director, Michangelo Antonioni, Italian film director who gave the world one of the quintessential Sixties mod movies, "Blowup" about a photographer who may or may not have snapped an image that includes a murder. (Not to be confused with Brian DePalma's 1980s movie "Blow Out" with Travolta, about a sound engineer who may or may not have made a recording of a murder.)

    And... let's not forget the passing of the Houston TV consumer reporter whose real-life "involvement" with a brothel was the inspiration for the musical "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." (Sorry, I forgot the guy's name!)

    "Let's fire up a colortini in honor of all the greats who've left us this week." ("Fire up a colortini" was a Snyder catchphrase on his 1990s CBS show)

    Mark
