    Ironic, Bergman made some of the greatest films ever about about the end of life (Wild Strawberries) and death (The Seventh Seal). He's widely considered one of the all-time great directors. Too bad his films aren't given more airplay on TV. You may be able to find them at your local independent video store. I saw a great interview of him by Dick Cavett (probably from the 70s) not so long ago on TCM.

    Picture of Tom Snyder for those too young to remember him. He was a good one.

    Tom Snyder was good, but really dry for those of us in our 20's when he made his return to late night television. I knew who he was when he first came back, but he just wasn't the same for some reason from some of the clips I'd seen from historical late shows.

    He could ask a good question, get a good response, but he was far too carnal for the younger generation in my opinion.

    Dart,

    Yep, Tom Snyder could be considered cranial... and cerebral -- rather brainy...

    And, at times, verging on carnal, too. ;-)

    He could be beyond flirty with some of his female guests, esp on his CBS late late show of 5+ years ago. Two of my favorite guests in that regard were comedienne/actress Bonnie Hunt, and the actress who played Capt (?) Janeway on one of the later Star Trek shows. It was sexual tension and chemistry not typically seen on a talk show on network broadcast TV, and it was cool. I'm not able to really put it into words, but it wasn't creepy or kinky or weird It was two adults engaged in real conversation, not a talking head reading questions off a notecard, with the guest merely promoting their latest movie/TV show/book.

    We'll miss you, Tom.

    And as things happen in threes, legendary 49ers coach Bill Walsh also dies today.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Wake Forest basketball coach Skip Prosser died Thursday afternoon. 56 years old, he had been jogging and came back to his office and had a heart attack. An assistant coach found him in his office.
