I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to Dom DeLuise, who passed away yesterday at the age of 75.  The guy made me laugh quite a bit when I would watch those movies he starred in during the ’70s and early ’80s.  The guy was funny.  Plain and simple.


Here is Dom DeLuise cracking up in outtakes of the movie The Cannonball Run.  This film came out in 1981 and had what was referred to back then as an “all-star” cast.  Hard to argue.  It had Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Dean, Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Farah Fawcett, Terry Bradshaw, Jackie Chan, Henry Fonda, and of course, Dom DeLuise.  Not bad, huh?  If you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and and watch it sometime.  Warning:  Sense of humor required.

Anyway, this was the first Burt Reynolds – Dom DeLuise flick I watched as a kid.  And I loved it.  Always brings back good memories.  Thanks for the laughs, Dom.

Today's Deep Thought

  • If someone told me it wasn't "fashionable" to talk about freedom, I think I'd just have to look him square in the eye and say, "Okay, YOU TELL ME what's "fashionable." But he won't. And you know why? Because you can't ask someone what's fashionable in a smart-alecky way like that. You have to be friendly and say, "By the way, what's fashionable?"
