    Hugh Malcolm Downs passed away at the tender age of 99.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Hugh Downs was one of the better-known hosts of Today (from 1962-2012) as well as being involved with several other rather "unknown" shows.

    Here's his filmography: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0236180/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

    I feel old. :(

    Bob the :kitty: crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 13th of this year (I know, it's been over a month, but the site was down when he passed.)

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was a stray that made it in books, busking and film while helping his human companion deal with substance abuse and other problems. Bob interacted with both commoners and "uppercrust"s with the same :kitty:tude.

    Here's his filmography: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6872584/?ref_=vp_back

    John Lewis passed away last weekend (I think) at the tender age of 80.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was one of the original civil rights marchers (he knew MLK Jr. in his youth) plus Congressman Lewis had served almost to his death. Now he's chatting it up with Elijah Cummings as well as several of his former colleagues from both the Freedom Riders and from Congress that had passed before him.

    Here's more about him (from the source where I found out about his passing, originally posted Tuesday):

    Herman Cain passed away from COVID-19 at the tender age of 74.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was an authentic entrepreneur (started up Godfathers Pizza franchise) and ex-candidate for US president on the Republican ticket back in 2012. He also got into remission after a diagnosis of Stage-4 cancer several years before contracting the coronavirus. It is suspected that he contracted the virus at Drumpf's Tulsa rally, which Cain attended.

    Buddy also passed away at the tender age of seven from COVID-19.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was the first confirmed case of canine vulnerability to the coronavirus in the United States, being symptomatic in April, soon before his seventh birthday. His human companions decided to end his suffering earlier this week.
