Conway got his start in the television biz working at a couple of local stations in Cleveland, OH. After Conway got famous, he's come back and do guest appearances on WJW's Hoolihan and Big Chuck Show, which we Youngstowners could get if the atmospheric conditions were just so.

Yesterday evening, I compelled the Li'l Puppet to watch both the Hot Dog sketch (one of the "Oldest Man" bits, mostly because I couldn't find the barbershop one) and the 2 versions of the Elephant Story bit*:






* 1st is the dress rehearsal. 2nd is the version recorded for the show, right before which Tim warned the cast, "the elephant story's gonna be different, so good luck to ya."

Half the fun of The Carol Burnett Show was watching the other performers desperately trying not to crack up at Tim Conway's antics.

Architect I.M. Pei is dead at 102. His most famous (and controversial) building is no doubt the Louvre pyramid, but he designed numerous others; check the link for some photos of some of them. He actually designed the dorm at the first college I attended — sort of. They skimped on the building materials and as a result the outside tiles got slippery whenever it rained; he was not amused.

In any case, R.I.P.

I had just been thinking about Grumpy Cat the day before her death. It's obviously my fault. Sorry.

Also, R.I.P. to Pulitzer Prizewinning novelist Herman Wouk (The Caine Mutiny, The Winds of War, War and Remembrance, Marjorie Morningstar, etc.), age 103 (!). Simon & Schuster editor Jonathan Karp called him "the Jackie Robinson of Jewish American fiction"; he arguably paved the way for other Jewish American authors such as Saul Bellow, Philip Roth, and so on.
