Looks like big people are dying left and right.

Ford has died. First James Brown and now Ford. I can only hope that Cheney is next (I mean, he’s had enough heart attacks that he can’t be that far).

RPGC deadpool, anyone? :slight_smile:

Why must the best die so young. :frowning:

I didn’t know who he was before reading the article. I thought you were talking about the president of the car manufacturer of the same name.

So much for big.

Dude. He pardoned Nixon :frowning:

DUDE. He was in The Simpsons:

“Say, Homer, do you like football?”
“Do I ever!”
“Do you like nachos?”
“Yes, Mr. Ford.”
“Well, why don’t you come over and watch the game, and we’ll have nachos? And then, some beer.”

Maybe it will be YOU!

The Hardest Working Man in Show Business has earned his rest. Godspeed, Funky President.

R.I.P. Mr. President Jerry Ford, he always seemed like a decent enough guy. He made Chevy Chase’s career, too. [Chase’s breakout role was the SNL skits where he played Ford, that basically ammounted to him falling down a lot.] And he had been the last surviving member of the Warren comission, which I did not previously know.

(Can’t Resist It: So now do we get to find out what REALLY happened? :D)

Ford left a present when he died!

That is pretty fuckin’ nice.

HAH!

Good stuff.

His pardon of Nixon seems to the late observer to have been an insidious, or at best, irresponsible gesture which failed to live up to the ideals of the American Revolution, that the head of government and state is just as responible for his crimes as any other man. The idea that it was a “gesture of healing” or some such nonsense rattles me to the hypothetically republican bone.

The late observer isn’t very observant.

And there went Saddam. And they didn’t even cover all of his offenses yet!

Then again, several hangings would only have the same effect eventually…

And the sick part is, the evening papers here are trying to make some rumour of a middle-aged artist buying porn the main story facedesk
