Joey Bishop, Dead at 89

The Misanthrope would have my head if I didn't make note of this while he's otherwise occupied...

Joey Bishop, the stone-faced comedian who found fame as a member of Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack, has died at 89. He was the group's last surviving member. Peter Lawford died in 1984, Sammy Davis Jr. in 1990, Dean Martin in 1995, and Sinatra in 1998.

Wow! I once again received my news from Toner Mishap. I even listened to parts of NPR on the way home today when the local affiliate was not asking for money.

I hope he left a journal behind.

Thank you for posting this, I'll have to figure out what to add to it.
