    Hamlisch gave us all so many memories. Too, too young to go.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    Unhappy

    R.I.P. Marvin, you gave us a lot of good music to enjoy.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
