RIP, George. You were a classic New Yorker  despite your temper and decisions. They don't make colorful characters like you anymore, I'm afraid.
Plus, did you hear about this new obesity drug?  It works but comes with side effects, apparently. Is this a way to fight our obesity epidemic? Would love to read some posts on this. 
I'm still amazed at Mel Gibson's recorded threats. He does belong in jail. I could actually picture him harming her seriously.
